43rd Year — No. 1 



Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Pennsylvania 



Friday, September 16, 1966 




Campus Welcomes 
Incoming Students 

When the freshmen, numbering 225, and transfer students, 25 strong, 
arrived on campus Sunday, they were greeted by members of the SCA 
cabinet who helped them move in. After supper for the students and their 
parents, there was a Vesper Service for the students on the lawn in front 
of the dining hall. After the service a reception was held for the students 
where they met members of the local clergy. 
On Monday, September 12, the new 



freshman class and transfer students heard 
the address of Dr. Benjamin D. James, 
Dean of Students at Dickinson College. 
His topic, "Would You Believe?," was 
presented at the opening Freshman Con- 
vocation. This convocation was the be- 
ginning of the 1966-67 academic year at 
Lebanon Valley College and prior to the 
orientation activities scheduled for the 
newcomers to the campus. In addition to 
Dr. James, Dr. Frederic K. Miller, Presi- 
dent of the College, Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart 
and Dr. James O. Bemesderfer participated 
in the program. 

Two dances planned to serve as get- 
acquainted sessions had been planned. 
The one, a square dance, took place Mon- 
day evening. The other took place Tues- 
day evening. 

The new students engaged in a three day 
orientation program following the con- 
vocation. On Monday, the summer read- 
ing program was explored in a faculty 
panel discussion of Albert Camus' The 
Stranger closely followed on Tuesday by 
Rachel Carson's Silent Spring. 

Tuesday was also the time and place for 
freshman registration, picture taking, and 
an introduction to campus procedures. 
On Wednesday the upperclassmen regis- 
tered for the first semester and the fresh- 
men were treated to a hike and picnic by 
the Student Christian Association. 

School officially started Thursday with 
opening convocation in the new chapel 



Pi Gamma Mu Chapter

SCA's Super -Skit 
To Debut Tonight 

Bang! Zoom! Biff! Superdean to the 
rescue! Will superdean save the new Col- 
lege Chapel from toppling to the forces 
of evil? Who is the Riddler, determined 
to foil the progress of the College? 

Come and see the Student Christian As- 
sociation's presentation of "Hello Ton- 
delayo or Can a Small Town Boy From 
Metropolis Make Good in Annville?" for 
the answers to these questions. The SCA 
skit was written by Larry Bachtell and 
Charles Curley. The skit, welcoming new 
students to campus and entertaining re- 
turning students, will be seen tonight at 
8:00 p.m. in Engle Hall. 

Larry Bachtell will direct the production 
with Jack Schwalm serving as the music 
director. It should prove to be an enjoy- 
able show as it is a tuneful, fast-moving, 
true to life depiction of Lebanon Valley 
College, its faculty and friends. 

The cast for the skit includes Gary 
Miller as Superdean, Leroy Arnold as the 
Riddler, Pixie Hunsicker as Tondelayo, 
Gretchen Long as Dean Faust, George 
Fulk as President Miller, and Ron Poor-

Delta Alpha Chapter 
Gains SAI Awards 

Mrs. Jeanette Kirk, National President of Sigma Alpha Iota, has 
announced that LVC's Delta Alpha Chapter has won not only the Province 
Chapter Achievement Award but also the National College Chapter 
Achievement Award for 1966. Founded in 1903, SAI is an internationally 
incorporated professional fraternity for women in the field of music. From 
140 SAI college chapters in the nation, Delta Alpha was selected as the 
most worthy of this recognition. 

Sigma Alpha Iota is classified as an international professional frater- 
nity for women in the field of music, and stands for the highest in musi- 
cianship. It is defined as a specialized fraternity which confines its 
members to a specific field of professional education in accredited colleges 
and universities and organizes itself to promote professional competency 
and achievement within its field. 

Included in the Professional Panhellenic Association, Sigma Alpha 
Iota ranks with the fraternities from such professions as commerce, law, 
physical education, journalism, nursing, pharmacy, medical technology, 
and education. 



Founded in 1903 at the University 
School of Music at Ann Arbor, Michigan, 
SAI has grown to a membership of over 
43,000. Its members are grouped into 
four branches of the fraternity: college 
chapters, regularly matriculated students 
in colleges or universities who have met 
the scholastic and performance require- 
ments of the chapter; alumnae chapters, 
former college members who remain ac- 
tive in SAI activities and assemble in 
principal cities of the U.S.; patroness mem- 
bers, women actively interested in com- 



munity musical affairs, in the endeavors 
of the college, and the program of the 
fraternity; and honorary members, those 
who have established and maintained 
reputations for exceptional musical stand- 
ing as performers, teachers, composers, or 
music leaders of national importance. 

The fraternity maintains a feeling of 
kinship among its members through inter- 
chapter occasions or State Days, and 
through its own magazine "Pan Pipes,"

Improvements Rife; 
Some Bewail Change 

by Paul Pickard 

Over the past few months, Lebanon Valley College was a Summer 
Festival — for the builder and the repairman. Many areas of the campus 
have been subjected to a long-needed face lifting. For example, West Hall 
has been rebuilt from the ground up. It was given a new paint job on the 
inside and out. 

Some of the returning residents of the dorm were said to have 
expressed grief over a potential loss of income for the semester. An adven- 
turous group of them had planned to offer the dorm as a site for future 
"Combat" films. A spokesman for the group said that with all the holes in 
the walls and ceilings, they had hoped the dorm could be used as a farm- 
house in one of the fight scenes. 

New tennis courts have been built so 
that the players will no longer have to 
worry about which pothole the ball will 
bounce into next. 

The gym has been renovated on the in- 
side so that it will be comfortably warm 
in the winter (for all those who objected 
to having to wear Mackinaws while in- 
side) and cool in the summer. 

Turkish baths in the gym will no longer 
be offered to the interested students dur- 
ing the spring months. This feature of 
campus life will be sorely missed by all 
those who found themselves being slowly 
wasted away by the heat during the year 
before last's performance by the Mitchell 



Trio. 

Another feature of the gym gone for- 
ever is the loudspeaker system. The loss 
of this formerly useless system will be 
felt most by those in the classics depart- 
ment who were always treated to a per- 
formance in speechmaking by a modern 
Demosthenes whenever Bob Campbell 
tried to relay an interesting play to the 
fans in one of the home basketball games. 

The College Chapel is near completion. 
The basement part of the chapel will be 
used by the students for classes, while the 
main part awaits only a few finishing 
touches.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, September 16, 1966 



"Great Expectations" 

La Vie Collegienne welcomes to campus all the Freshmen and new 
students at Lebanon Valley College. We are looking forward to a great 
year for the college and for the newspaper. It's up to every student on 
campus to help realize these expectations. 

The size of the college is increasing. New buildings have been 
completed over the summer months, and some older ones have been reno- 
vated. We on the La Vie staff hope, as well, to improve the campus 
newspaper this year. To do this we need the help of all students on 
campus. 

Last year several students expressed a reluctance to write their opin- 
ions for fear of censorship. May I state that this paper has not been and 
will not be subject to faculty or administrative censorship in the statement 
of honest, sincere student opinion. We welcome opinion, for only by 
hearing student opinion on every subject of interest to the college student 
can we serve you. Only by making known our opinions, whether critical 
or complimentary, can they be taken into account in the planning of policy 
and procedures. 

We urge students, faculty, and administration to express opinions in 
"Letters to the Editor." We also urge all organizations or groups to submit 
to La Vie the news of their activities. The La Vie mailbox is on the 
second floor of Carnegie Lounge, as is the La Vie room. Any information 
to be published can also be given to any staff member. 

Below are a list of the publication dates for La Vie to serve as a 
guide for you in preparing news.

Our Chapel 

Over the summer months Lebanon Valley College has gained a very 
attractive building in the College Chapel. Although there are still finishing 
touches to be added, Lebanon Valley can well be proud of the beauty of 
the building both inside and out. 

The sanctuary will provide a place where the whole college com- 
munitly can worship together. The basement of the building should 
provide adequate and comfortable facilities for classes, and offices, and 
meetings and lectures. It is good that these facilities will be open for the 
use of the general campus through use of secular, extra-curricular ac- 
tivities. 

With the showing of the first of a series of films in the lecture room of 
the Chapel next Friday night the lecture room will again use as a much 
needed expansion of the campus facilities for seating a group of greater 
number than a single class. The policy of allowing the basement of the 
Chapel to remain free for use for secular campus activities is greatly 
appreciated. Thanks go to the administration and faculty responsible for 
adopting this policy in the face of a great need for these larger and more 
adequate facilities on the LVC campus. — R.A.S. 



1984 

Of all the construction and repairs that have been taking place since 
we left school for the summer, the one building that is conspicuous in its 
absence is the proposed Student Center. There have been delays in com- 
pleting the final plans, and of late it has become fashionable to wonder 
when, if ever, the construction will begin. 

The question of whether or not the administration should be accused 
of "dragging its feet" in the matter is not at issue now. The decision on 
when to begin construction has practically been taken out of the adminis- 
tration's hands by the federal government. 

The government has refused to accept this (and many other) college's 
application for a loan to build a student center. This action by the govern- 
ment leaves only one other avenue open to the college — to try to get a loan 
from a private lending institution. However, with the current "tight 
money" situation that is now plaguing this (see "Inflation and US") and 
many other countries, the 7 or 8 % interest charged by the private institu- 
tions, compared to the 3% interest charged by the government hardly 
seems a suitable alternative. 

To make matters more complicated, the architect originally engaged 
to draw up plans for the center left the firm with which he was working to 
accept a position at another college. Thus, the administration has had to 
explain to another architect all over again what it and the students wanted, 
and what had been done so far. 

The new architect will be on campus soon to speak with us. Everyone 
will benefit if the entire student body would help get the final plans in 
order so that work can begin as soon as the government changes its 
policy — about 1984. — P.F.P. 



Carnegie Lounge hours for the year are: Monday through Thursday, 12:00 
noon to 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 12:00 noon 
to 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 midnight; and Sunday, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. 
and 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. 



Valley Staff Adds

sions; David M. Long, Director of Alumni 
Relations and Placement; Mrs. Elizabeth 
V. Garthly, Assistant Professor of Art; 
and Paul L. Wolf, Assistant Professor of

sponsored by the Franco-American As- 
sociation to assist in the conversational as- 
pects of the French program. Sht is a 
graduate of the University of Clermont- 
Ferrand and is now on the staff at Lycee 
Banville in France. 



Economics Department 
Announces Film Series 

The Department of Economics and 
Business Administration announces the 
showing of a series of sixty films on the 
American Economy during the academic 
year. 

According to Dr. C. F. Joseph Tom the 
films deal with such timely subjects as: 
can we have full employment without in- 
flation?; economics, politics, and the 
money supply; The United States balance 
of payments; American capitalism; Com- 
munism — the Russian Model; the econ- 
omics of underdevelopment; and others. 
A detailed announcement on the titles and 
schedule of showing will be made shortly. 
The showing is open to the public and is 
free. 

Fifty per cent of the June graduates 
majoring in Economics and Business Ad- 
ministration are entering graduate schools 
for advanced studies this fall. They are: 

Michael Alleman going to Temple 
University; Kenneth Hook to Fairleigh- 
Dickinson University; James Lesher to 
Wharton School, University of Pennsyl- 
vania; Theodore Long to University of 
Richmond; Richard Shenk to Dickinson 
Law School with full tuition scholarship; 
Donald Stanton to Boston University; and 
Frank Yeager to University of Pittsburgh. 

Dr. Tom also mentions that under the 
reading program of the Department of 
Economics and Business Administration, 
students majoring in Economics and Bus- 
iness Administration as well as other stu- 
dents taking courses in the Department 
during this current semester will read 
The Rich Nations and the Poor Nations 
by Barbara Ward. 

This volume, which has received wide 
attention currently in the United States, 
was first published in 1962. As the title 
suggests, this book discusses the differ- 
ences between the rich and poor nations in 
the world today and suggests some ways 
and means that the rich nations could and 
should help the poor nations. Miss Ward 
concludes with the question, "Am I free 
if my brother is bound by hopeless poverty 
and ignorance?" 



IFSC Promotes Union 
Of Social Organization 

During the first semester of this school 
year, the Inter-Fraternity Student Council 
will attempt to better unite the various 
social organizations at LVC. In the past 
IFSC acted mostly as a police organization 
for initiations, but with a new, or revised, 
constitution and new energy, IFSC plans 
to have an improved faculty-student or- 
ganization relationship. 



Inflation And US 

Beginning this week, and continuing throughout the year, the editors 
have decided to ask a leading student from selected departments to write a 
short article about affairs in the national interest. 

This week, we begin with an article from the Economics Department. 

by Paul Foutz 

Inflation has been a topic of lively debate during the past several 
months. There is no doubt that inflation is present in the United States 
economy. The consumer price index increased 3.6 per cent from March, 
1965, to June, 1966, as compared with an average annual increase of 1.4 
per cent for the preceding five years. A large portion of the price increase 
is reflected by foodstuffs which rose 7% from the first quarter of 1965 to 
the second quarter of 1966. 

The unemployment rate is down to 3.9% which means labor is 
scarce. Employers are actively competing with each other for labor and 
consequently paying a high price for it. The supply of money is up almost 
10 billion dollars from a year ago, creating more demand in an already 
booming economy. U. S. industry is working at more than 90% of its 
capacity, causing many obsolete, high-cost facilities to be pressed into 
service. Military expenditures due to an expanding war in Vietnam are 
running at 60 billion dollars a year. 

All these figures point to an increase in demand. The stage is set for 
inflation, which may be defined as a rise in the general price level. 

How does an economist view inflation? If the rate of increase in 
prices remains below the rate of increase in an economy's real output and 
if the distribution of real wealth is not altered substantially, then inflation 
is not especially harmful. An important point economists stress is that 
inflation should not impair the growth and use of an economy's real 
production resources. 

But when inflation snowballs, as in the past year, many people begin 
to worry. Persons on fixed incomes find their buying power shrinking as 
prices climb higher. Credit becomes too expensive with its high inter- 
est rates. 



What are the factors that affect rising 
prices? They are total Supply and total 
Demand. If total Demand rises faster 
than total Supply, then prices tend to rise. 
If total Supply increases faster than total 
Demand, prices will tend to fall. 

At the present time both Supply and 
Demand are rising, but Demand is in- 
creasing faster than Supply. From the 
second quarter of 1965 to the second 
quarter of 1966, the gross national pro- 
duct (GNP) rose from 672^9 billion dollars 
to 732.3 billion dollars, a 59.4 billion dol- 
lar increase. During the same period per- 
sonal consumption expenditures rose 33.3 
billion dollars, business expenditures rose 
14.8 billion dollars, and government ex- 
penditures rose 14.7 billion dollars. These 
three sectors of the economy, government, 
business, and personal consumption, ac- 
count for the increased Demand affecting 
the economy. 

What can be done to control the in- 
flation? The private consumers can reduce 
their spending by buying fewer and lower- 
priced items. Business can curtail its in- 
vestment and expansion programs, as well 
as cooperating with labor to keep wages 
and prices stable. 

The Federal Reserve System has raised 
its interest rate for loans to banks to 4.5%. 
It has also been more reluctant to grant 
loans at all. The result of the Federal Re- 
serve's action has been a curb on credit 
expansion and hence a curb also on De- 
mand. 

The government could reduce its ex- 
penditures or increase taxes. President 



Johnson has already asked Congress to 
suspend the 7% investment tax credit and 
rapid depreciation policies instituted dur- 
ing 1962. There is considerable govern- 
ment favor for a tax increase, though un- 
doubtedly after the November elections. 

Let us remember that the government 
has many tools, ranging from voluntary 
restraint to wage-price controls, to deal 
with inflation. But government action 
should- only be a last resort. Business and 
the consumers' sectors of the economy 
should try to solve the problem first. Thus 
far, only the Federal Reserve System has 
acted decisively. 

In any event, some additional steps 
should be taken now to avoid a worsening 
of our economic situation and inter- 
national prestige. The latter will probably 
be lowered at the meeting of the Inter- 
national Monetary Fund and World Bank 
on September 26 when criticism is likely 
to be aimed at the U.S. for not solving its 
inflation problem.

Dutchmen Anticipate 
Successful Season 

Since September 1, LVC's squad of 56 football players has been 
practicing for the season ahead and for the opening game with Wilkes 
College on September 24. Wilkes is the defending Northern Division 
MAC champion, and head coach William McHenry and his assistants 
George Darlington and Ken Snyder have spent many hours helping the 
players and planning their strategy for the eight games the Dutchmen will 
play this season. 



The 56 players have been having three 
drills and two team meetings a day since 
they arrived. Of the twelve returning 
lettermen, captain Larry Painter, end, 
flankerback and defensive end Bob Hawk, 
safetyman Bob Martalus, and linebacker 
Dan Chambers should stand out, while 
tackle Pete Giraffa and fullback John 
Fasnacht are expected to turn out the fine 
playing that won Pete a Southern College 
Division All-E.C.A.C. selection and made 
John one of the leading ground-gainers in 
the conference last year. 

Backing up, and filling in some key 
positions with the upperclassmen will be 
freshmen like Taki Bobotas, quarterback, 
tailbacks Greg Scott and Terry Light, and 
Gene Shaffer, flankerback. 

The Dutchmen did well in a scrimmage 
with Millersville State on September 10. 
They will end their scrimmage schedule at 
F&M on September 17.

Saylor Hall Offices 
Serve All Students 

Saylor Hall, located on College and Sheridan Avenues, is the scene of 
many college activities wich few of the students know much about. This 
building is the home of the College Relations area of LVC administration. 

The Alumni Office, the Public Relations office, and the Development 
Office would like to take this opportunity to introduce the personnel and 
functions of the offices. 

The first floor houses the Devolpment Office, headed by Edward P. 
Hoffer, Director of Development. Mr. Hoffer is assisted by Walter Smith, 
Assistant Director of Development and Coordinator of Conferences. This 
office is responsible for the fund-raising drives so necessary to keep the 
college progressing in its attempt to provide a well-rounded liberal educa- 
tion to all students. 



The second floor houses both the 
Alumni and Public Relations Offices. 
Heading the Alumni office is David M. 
Long, Director of Alumni Relations and 
Placement. Mrs. P. Rodney Kreider serves 
as the Assistant Director of Alumni Re- 
lations. In the area of placement, Mr. 
Long will serve as liason between the 
student body and representatives of bus- 
iness, industry, and government as LVC 
moves to expand its industrial placement 
program. The program will offer career 
counseling to all seniors. But Mr. Long 
is also anxious to help answer questions 
from all students on career opportunities. 

Working in the Public Relations area 
are the head of the office, Richard V. 
Showers, Director of Public Relations; 
and Mrs. Edna Carmean, Executive Secre- 
tary of the Centennial Celebration, whose 



Valley Announces 
New Scholarships 

The establishment of the Miss Dorothea 
Killinger Scholarship Program at Lebanon 
Valley College has been announced by 
Dr. Frederic K. Miller. 

Mrs. Catharine Killinger Reese, Leb- 
anon, the surviving sister of Dorothea 
Killinger, has established the program. 

Honoring the memory of a former 
Lebanon resident who for many years was 
intensely interested in the educational and 
cultural development of her native city 
and county, the program will support two 
half-tuition scholarships for young women 
from Lebanon County who, by their 
character, educational achievements and 
potential, shall give promise of fulfilling 
the desires frequently expressed by Miss 
Killinger, to assist such students. 

The selection of the recipients of the 
Dorothea Killinger Scholarships will be 
made by the scholarship committee of 
the Lebanon Valley College faculty. 

While the awards will be given for a 
period of one year, they will be renewable 
if the recipients continue to merit this 
distinction. 



office is now located on second floor 
Saylor. This area of college relations deals 
with all publications and publicity and 
encourages students to let them know 
what is happening on campus. 

Mrs. Ann Monteith, Assistant in Public 
Relations, will serve as advisor to both 
La Vie Collegienne and the Quittapahilla, 
replacing Rev. Bruce Souders who is 
now chairman of the English Department 
at Shenandoah College, Winchester, Vir- 
ginia. 

The personnel in these offices extend a 
welcome to all students to drop by their 
offices if they have problems in these 
areas, or to discuss any problem during 
their college stay. 

Opening Exhibit Shows 
Art Of Valley Graduate 

The first of nine Carnegie Lounge Art 
Exhibits for the 1966-67 academic year 
will be the paintings of David F. Lenker, 
a graduate of Lebanon Valley College. 
They will be exhibited from September 
9-20. 

Lenker began painting landscapes in oil 
while serving as an Air Force pilot during 
World War II. Following the war he 
studied at the Harrisburg Art Association 
under Nick Ruggieri and Betty Snow. 
Later study was done with J. Wesley 
Gable. 

Lenker's initial interest in landscape 
painting continues to be his primary in- 
terest. He found abundant material for 
these while traveling in Portugal, Germany 
and Austria. His media has broadened 
from oils to include watercolor, charcoal, 
pastels, and pen and ink. Most are land- 
scapes with a few in the impressionistic 
mode. 

In addition to the present exhibit, ex- 
hibits of the artist's work have been hung 
in the LVC Spring Art Show, the Harris- 
burg Art Association and in Gohn Gal- 
leries. "Christmas in Hungary," an oil, 
won second prize in the 1966 Patriotic 
News competition in Harrisburg. 

The Carnegie Lounge Art Exhibits are 
open to the public at no charge.

La Vie Inquires 



''I'LL {SET THEY PAI£EP TH' TUITION A&AfN THIS YEAfc." 



Newcomers Present 
Campus Life Views 

by Nancy Hendrickson 

For upperclassmen the beginning of school is a time to renew friend- 
ships, to fulfill last year's resolutions to improve, and to plunge into 
another year of hard work. For freshmen the start of college is the begin- 
ning of a totally new experience. To some college is everything they heard 
it would be; to others it is a pleasant surprise or a bitter disappointment. 
Below are remarks about the orientation program by some members of the 
Class of 1970. 



JANICE CONRAD: Sunday, September 
1 1 was a very exciting and suspense-filled 
day for me. Leaving my home, family, 
and friends was a new experience, but my 
LVC friends made me feel right at home. 
In my first few hours on campus, I met 
many people. There is a truly friendly 
atmosphere on campus. My big sister, 
dorm president, floor president, and many 
SCA representatives have helped me and 
have extended their hands of friendship. 

A great many activities have been 
planned to help adjust to college life. I 
feel that I will be happy in my new sur- 
roundings and will enjoy LVC. 

SUSAN STAMBAUGH: As my family 
and I traveled to LVC, I was filled with 
mixed emotions. I had no idea of what to 
expect, except plenty of work. Now that 
I have arrived I've found LVC to be a 
warm and friendly place. Mrs. Hanigan, 
the dorm president, the hall president, 
and so many others have all made me feel 
welcome. Since there are numerous ac- 
tivities on campus, I haven't found time to 
be homesick, and in the future I don't 
think I shall either. 

I am looking forward to my freshman 
year and am sure I shall enjoy every 
minute of it. 

BILL ALLEN: All the upperclassmen 
are very friendly, but most of the fresh- 
men, including myself, are a little scared 
and shy. There have not been any ac- 
tivities as of yet, so I cannot judge them. 
All the people I have heard are worth 
listening to. 

PEGGY LITTLE: After completing al- 
most two days at LVC, it is not too hard 
to realize that the college is very warm 
and friendly. The SCA is a great asset to 
the welcoming of new students. 

The activities so far have been necessary 
and basically helpful to incoming students. 
Not knowing what to expect at college, 
I found it an enjoyable experience. 

NANCY SWENSON: My first impres- 
sion was the "shock wave" of friendliness 
which hit me as I moved into my room. 
Cheerful welcomes were given by upper- 
classmen and mutual greetings were ex- 
changed with fellow Frosh. 

The vesper service was really enjoyable 
Sunday night: I felt more a part of the 
freshman class when we were all there 
doing something together. The skit with 
the different readers taking parts to ex- 
plain the feelings a new freshman could 
expect was very enjoyable and something 
to reflect upon in the future. 

College is more or less what I expected 
to find — there is a slight feeling of lone- 
liness now which I trust will be disspelled 
soon. 



JUDY BLASINGAME: Amidst the 
first confusion upon arrival, help was 
easily found from housemothers, hall 
presidents, and, generally speaking, all 
upperclassmen you looked at questioning- 
ly. The atmosphere was instantaneously 
friendly and the activities planned for the 
near future should continue to be enjoy- 
able for those of us who take part. 

There are always impressions which 
we form before entering. Some are prob- 
ably a complete surprise for us and others 
are expected. On the whole, however, we 
have all been expecting a new kind of life 
on campus and this I am sure we have all 
found and have mostly enjoyed. 

KAREN HEGERICH: Campus at LVC 
so far has been great! The upperclassmen 
that I have met so far are all absolutely 
marvelous! Everyone's so friendly it's un- 
believeable. 

Although my time at the square dance 
was limited, I enjoyed it very much. At 
least I got to know a lot more Frosh like 
myself. 

MARY LOU MAXWELL: Valley 
seems to be a very friendly school, and 
all the upperclassmen are willing to offer 
advice and help. 

The activities have helped us get to 
know other freshmen besides the ones on 
our floor. 



New Facilities To Host 
Film Classics Program 

Mrs. Agnes O'Donnell and David 
Walker, '68, have announced the showing 
of a series of seven film classics in the 
lecture room in the new chapel building. 
The films will be shown monthly, on Fri- 
day evenings at 8 p.m. 

The films are a well known selection of 
some of America's most popular works, in- 
cluding on September 23, "From Here To

Summer"; November 11, "Casablanca"; 
January 13, "Bus Stop"; February 24,

$3.00, or single tickets may be purchased 
for each film for 60 cents. The series 
ticket entitles the subscriber to seven ad- 
missions which may be used for guests 
at one admission each. 

Series tickets are on sale at the English 
Office, 112 College Avenue. Single tickets 
for each performance will be sold at the 
door of the auditorium on the night of the 
film. 



DELTA ALPHA HONOR 

(Continued from Page 1) 

which carries word of chapter activities 
and articles by well-known leaders in the 
music field. 

Sigma Alpha Iota receives many honors 
nationally because of its promotion of 
American music and musicians and be- 
cause of its philanthropic assistance in 
such projects as musical therapy, the 
musical rehabilitation of other countries, 
and promotion of the Music for the Blind 
and the Braille Institute. Locally, Sigma 
Alpha Iota provides inspirational help to 
each of its members. 

Activities of Delta Alpha Chapter in the 
past award-winning year had been varied. 
Its most important project was the brailling 
of the SAI ritual book by Betty Lindquist. 
During the second semester, members of 
the chapter dictated the ritual to Betty, 
who made two copies of the ritual on her 
braille typewriter. These copies were 
given to the national SAI office so that 
they may be of use to blind members of 
the fraternity throughout the country. 

A second large undertaking of the 
chapter was the evaluation of a series of 
recording tapes for the Department of 
Public Instruction. With the aid of Dr, 
Russell Getz, head of the State Depart- 
ment of Music Education, the chapter 
classified tapes according to their use in 
elementary through collegiate level. 

Early in the year LVC's SAI chapter 
joined forces with its brother fraternity 
Sinfonia to present the musical comedy 
"Once Upon a Mattress." At Christmas 
time Delta Alpha performed two exchange 
concerts with the SAI chapter of Susque- 
hanna University. In February Delta 
Alpha presented a musicale based entirely 
on American music of the twentieth cen- 
tury. 

Later in the year Delta Alpha sponsored 
the Pickwell Benefit Concert given in 
memory of Marcia Pickwell, a former 
member of the music staff of the college. 
The concert was played by two of the 
chapter's patronesses, Miss Reeve and 
Miss VanSteenwyk, duo pianists. SAI 
concluded its year with a picnic with 
Sinfonia at Hershey Park. 

Delta Alpha is looking forward to an- 
other good year. Plans for the broadway 
show "The Roar of the Greasepaint — The 
Smell of the Crowd" are already being 
made by SAI and Sinfonia members. This 
year's calendar also includes another pro- 
gram with Susquehanna University, an 
American Musicale, and a concert by 
Margaret Zimmerman, a graduate of LVC 

Lebanon Valley College can be ex- 
tremely proud of its SAI for these out- 
standing achievements on the state and 
national level. 

On September 23 at 4 P.M., SAI will 
hold a first semester rush party. All 
upperclassmen and freshmen interested in 
learning about SAI or in pledging at some 
future time are welcome. The party will 
take place at the home of Mrs. Bender, an 
SAI patroness, in Annville.

"Get Smart" 

by Valerie Yeager 

Do you recall why you chose a small college like LVC? Wasn't 
the idea of having small intimate classes with much time available for 
questions and discussion one of the most compelling factors? You didn't 
want to "be a number" — right? 

Well, here we are in our small college, in our small classes, and our 
professors know us by our own names. What happens now? The professor 
lectures, asks if there are any questions (there are none), and he finishes 
his remarks. Meanwhile, students conscientiously take notes. Class ends, 
and we pack up and leave. 

Next class — the professor asks the students a question during his 
lecture. Following a long, awkward silence, the professor is forced to call 
on someone, who gives THE ANSWER (the one on page 56). These 
situations may not occur in every class, but the tragedy is that they do 
occur in so many of our classes at LVC. Think of the classes you 
attended today. 

You can't tell me the professors are 
any less bored than the students when 
every lecture runs smoothly without in- 
terruption. What went wrong with our 
"best of all possible worlds"? Could it be 
that we have become spectators at, rather 
than participants in, our own education? 
Surely we have our share of boring lec- 
tures, but it seems we have more than 
our share of boring students — students 
who never ask a question, never take a 
stand, never disagree. How can we deserve 
stimulating classes when we do not par- 
ticipate? Would not professors, much 
like other artists, be more inspired by a 
responsive audience? 

We often forget that education is a 
two-way street. The best of universities 
can only expose us to a volume of know- 
ledge — it is we who must educate our- 
selves through absorption and discussion. 
It simply will not come through ex- 
posure alone, like a suntan. 

I believe we have the potential at 
LVC for creating classroom atmos- 
pheres conducive to inspiring discussion. 
After all, the main purpose of higher 
education is to teach us how to think, 
rather than what to think, and in achiev- 
ing this end the student's participation is 
vital. 

When was the last time you asked 
"Why?"? 



World Watcher 

Yugoslavia: The United States, on 
August 25, 1966, welcomed the accession 
of Yugoslavia to the General Agreement 
on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). In sup- 
porting the Yugoslav application for 
GATT membership, the United States 
took into account the major economic 
reforms undertaken by the Yugoslav 
Government since 1961, and the com- 
mendable progress made by the Yugo- 
slavs in adopting the liberal commercial 
policies incumbent upon GATT mem- 
bers — lowering trade barriers, etc. 

Mexico: In response to a request from 
the Government of Mexico, the U.S. 
Department of State and Interior have 
offered to loan (or advance) Mexico ap- 
proximately 40,535 acrefeet of Colorado 
River water to aid Mexicali Valley farm- 
ers during a late 1966 emergency. This 
gesture of the U.S. is toward the preven- 
tion of loss of acres of crops in the Valley 
during an expected drought. 

Japan: The first shipment from Asia 
°f irradiated nuclear fuel to be repro- 
cessed in the U.S. arrived at Seattle, 
Washington, 6 weeks ago. This fuel was 
leased to the Government of lapan in 
1961 under the U.S. -Japan Agreement for 
Cooperation in the Civil Uses of Atomic 
Energy for uses in a research reactor (the 
JRR-2 ). The Asian Development Bank, 
ln 8 months, achieved agreement on a 
charter, approval of subscription to 
capital stock, and signature by 31 coun- 
tries of the Articles of Agreement. The 
•naugural meeting of the bank is scheduled 
to be held in Tehran, Iran, in October, 
1966.

State Historical Society 
Holds Campus Session 

The thirty-fifth annual meeting of the 
Pennsylvania Historical Society will be 
held in Lebanon and Annville on Friday 
and Saturday, October 21 and 22. The 
sessions on Friday will be conducted in 
Lebanon and those on Saturday on this 
campus. 

At the sessions papers will be read on 
topics and periods of Pennsylvania his- 
tory. Among the subjects to be covered 
are "Religion in the Eighteenth Century," 
"The Revolutionary Period," "The Fed- 
eralist Period," and "Government and 
Social Questions." 

The meeting constitutes the Depart- 
mental Special Centennial Events of the 
department of history and political sci- 
ence. It will bring to campus professors 
from various colleges and universities 
throughout the state, members of local 
historical organizations, representatives of 
the staff of the Pennsylvania Historical 
and Museum Commission, and others in- 
terested in Pennsylvania's past. 

A number of current and previous 
members of the college faculty and admin- 
istration have had important responsibil- 
ities in planning for the two-day meeting. 
Dr. Elizabeth Geffen and Dr. Ralph Shay 
have chaired committees. Dr. Samuel 
Farmerie, Mr. James Jolly, Rev. Bruce 
Souders, and Mr. Richard Showers are 
among those faculty and administration 
personnel who have rendered assistance. 

Some college personnel will be taking 
part in the program. Dr. Frederic Miller 
will bring the college greeting to the par- 
ticipants, Dr. Shay will preside at the 
luncheon on Saturday at the Treadway 
Inn, Dr. Bemesderfer will offer the in- 
vocation, and Dr. Paul Wallace will pre- 
sent a paper entitled "The Founding of 
Lebanon Valley College: An Experiment 
In Democracy." 

Students in the department of history 
and political science will have duties as 
registration personnel, assistants, guides, 
parking aids, and information personnel. 

Students are invited to attend any or 
all sessions of the meeting. They will not 
be required to pay any registration fee. 
Copies of the meeting's program are 
posted on several bulletin boards in the 
administration building. All interested 
students are asked to contact Dr. Shay or 
his secretary, Mrs. Dettra, in room 22 on 
the second floor of South Hall by October 
14. 

At the time of their attendance at the 
meeting, students should stop at the regis- 
tration desk at the Treadway Inn, the 
chapel, or the vestibule of the college 
dining hall to register, receive a packet 
of materials and a name tag. In the case 
of those students planning to attend ses- 
sions in Lebanon, a transportation pool 
will be established. 



Music Fraternities 
List Musical Cast 

Sigma Alpha Iota opened the 1966 
year with a "Hobo" rush party at the 
home of Mrs. Ruth Bender, one of SAI's 
patronesses. Interested girls had a chance 
to learn about the SAI and meet the 
sisters in an informal setting. 

SAI and Sinfonia began rehearsals for 
the Roar of the Greasepaint — the Smell 
of the Crowd last week. After tryouts 
Sunday the following people were chosen 
for the cast: the leads will be played by 
Gary Miller, Chuck Curley, Gretchen 
Long, Dave Keehn, Dennis Brown, and 
Susie Chase. The supporting cast in- 
cludes Pat Rohrbaugh, Paula Ward, Ra- 
chel Gibble, Marcia Gehris, Carol Cam- 
eron, Stephanie Fauber, Jamie Murphy, 
Anna Schwartz, and Ruth Long. 

SAI will again be selling soft pretzels 
in the dorms on Wednesday evenings. 

Once again this year, Iota Kappa Chap- 
ter, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is sponsoring 
the sale of season tickets to the Harris- 
burg Symphony. The Symphony is un- 
der the direction of Edwin McArthur. 
This year, it is performing the works of 
Bernstein, Strauss, Wagner, Brahms, Pro- 
kofieff, and Barber. Highlights of the 
season are Tschaikowsky's "Sixth Sym- 
phony" (The Pathetique) and Grieg's "A 
Minor Piano Concerto." Concerts are also 
included by the Pittsburgh Symphony and 
the Minneapolis Symphony. Student mem- 
berships cost $7.00 for the season. In- 
dividual tickets to both guest orchestra 
concerts would cost $6.00, so the student 
membership is an excellent bargain. 

The Harrisburg Symphony has always 
been of special interest to Valley since it 
is the closest and best of the local sym- 
phonies. In addition, several Valley fac- 
ulty members, alumni, and students, per- 
form with the group. 

Sinfonia sponsors transportation to and 
from the concerts at no cost to the ticket 
holders. Bob Goodling, 212 Keister Hall, 
has more information for those interested 
and also has tickets to sell. 



Local Pastor To Speak 
At All Campus Retreat 

This year's SCA Fall All-Campus Re- 
treat will be held September 30 to Oc- 
tober 1 at Camp Pine Woods, featuring 
the Rev. Mr. Miller Price, from the Ann- 
ville Christ United Church of Christ. He 
will speak on the topic, "The Christian 
Community, Progression or Regression." 

The weekend program allows for fel- 
lowship, devotion, and discussion. The 
campers will be leaving on September 30 
at 4:00 P.M. from Sheridan Hall. 

The SCA programs this year will be 
meeting every Wednesday night at 7:15 
p.m. in the lecture hall of the chapel. The 
upcoming meetings include: a program 
presented by students who spent their 
summer vacations in foreign countries, 
October 5; Faculty Firesides, October 12. 



Sorority Looks Forward 
To Year In Clio House 

The girls of Kappa Lambda Nu ex- 
tend a cordial invitation to visit their 
house on North College Avenue. Clio is 
especially proud of the intramural Su- 
premacy Trophy which they won last 
spring and which now sits on the mantle 
in their lounge. 

With their first meeting over, Clio is 
planning many new activities for the com- 
ing year, including an open house in 
October, a booth at the WCC block par- 
ty, and contributions to homecoming 
weekend. They plan many more activi- 
ties with Philo than held in the past and 
look forward to working closely with 
their new adviser, Miss Faye Burras. 




KALO To Present 
Lettermen Concert 

The Lettermen, one of the most exciting and versatile singing groups 
of the current era, will be presented in concert by Kappa Lambda Sigma on 
Saturday, October 15. The newly renovated and acoustically treated 
Lynch Memorial Gymnasium promises to enhance the mellow tones of 
this fabulous trio. 



In 1962, the Lettermen opened their 
career to unanimous acclaim at Holly- 
wood's Crescendo. Since then, the trio 
has performed before hundreds of tele- 
vision, night club, and college audiences. 
This group exhibits a variety of songs, in- 
cluding folk, pop, rock and traditional 
numbers. Their renditions blend in a 
velvet and easy style which cannot help 
but fascinate the listener. 

Tickets to this evening can be pur- 
chased from any Kalo brother. 



Dean Lists Information 
On Danforth Fellowship 

Inquiries about the Danforth Graduate 
Fellowships, to be awarded in March, 
1967, are now invited, according to Dean 
Carl Y. Ehrhart, the local campus repre- 
sentative. 

The Fellowships, offered by the Dan- 
forth Foundation of St. Louis, Missouri, 
are open to men and women who are 
seniors or recent graduates of accredited 
colleges in the United States, who have 
serious interest in college teaching as a 
career, and who plan to study for a Ph.D. 
in a field common to the undergraduate 
college. Applicants may be single or mar- 
ried, must be less than thirty years of 
age at the time of application, and may 
not have undertaken any graduate or pro- 
fessional study beyond the baccalaureate. 

Approximately 120 Fellowships will be 
awarded in March, 1967. Candidates must 
be nominated by Liaison Officers of their 
undergraduate institutions by November 
1, 1966. The Foundation does not accept 
direct applications for the Fellowships. 

Danforth Graduate Fellows are elig- 
ible for four years of financial assistance, 
with a maximum annual living stipend of 
$2400 for single Fellows and $2950 for 
married Fellows, plus tuition and fees. 
Dependency allowances are available. 
Financial need is not a condition for con- 
sideration. 

Danforth Fellows may hold other fel- 
lowships such as Ford, Fulbright, Na- 
tional Science, Rhodes, Woodrow Wilson, 
etc. concurrently, and will be Danforth 
Fellows without stipend until the other 
awards lapse. 

The Danforth Foundation was founded 
in 1927 by the late William H. Danforth, 
a St. Louis businessman and philanthrop- 
ist, and its primary aim is to strengthen 
education through programs of fellow- 
ships and workshops, and through grants 
to schools, colleges, universities and other 
educational agencies. 



Artist To Display "Life" 
In Campus Art Exhibit 

The Carnegie Lounge Art Exhibits at 
Lebanon Valley will feature the work of 
Henry M. Libhart, October 1-20, accord- 
ing to Miss Martha C. Faust, director of 
the exhibitions. 

Mr. Libhart, who teaches English at 
Millersville State College and art history 
at the Lancaster Country Day School ,is a 
master of trompe I'oeil. This art form 
is one in which the artist paints objects 
in dimension and actual size, and by use 
of shading and visual effects, makes them 
look at first glance like "the real thing." 
Hours of painstaking work are required 
for this hyper-realistic technique. 

In 1960 Libhart's entry in the Greater 
Philadelphia Grand Exhibit won first 
prize. He has also won prizes at the Lan- 
caster Open Award Show almost every 
year since 1958 and in 1965 at the Lan- 
caster Regional Show. 

This completely self-taught artist is 
represented in the collections of the 
Monslair Art Museum, New Jersey; the 
Electra Carlin Gallery, Fort Worth, 
Texas; the Chillingworth Collection, 
Washington, D.C.; the Grumbacher Col- 
lections in New York; and in other private 
collections. 



Investment Club Elects 
Officers For New Year 

The Lebanon Valley College Invest- 
ment Club elected officers for the current 
academic year at an organizational meet- 
ing on September 22, 1966. The new of- 
ficers are: Ken Conrad, president; Jim 
Mann, vice-president; Cliff Heizmann, 
secretary-treasurer. 

The club plans to investigate and then 
purchase several stocks during October. 
The activities gives members valuable ex- 
perience and knowledge about the work- 
ings of the American financial world. 
Last year the club realized a sizable profit 
on their investment. 

Any students who have completed or 
are completing Economics 20 and 23 are 
invited to join the club. New members are 
earnestly sought. Any other students are 
welcome at the club's regular meetings. 
More information about the club may be 
obtained from the officers and by con- 
sulting room 105 in the Lynch Building 
for the time and the date of the meetings.

Change 



Change is always with us. Usually, it creeps up and is part of a long 
series of prior events. Sometimes, however, it comes from nowhere and 
abruptly changes even the most stable bastion of rational planning. 

Since all things do change, it is often worthwhile to look back from 
time to time at their original aims to see whether there has been a radical 
departure from them. This backward glance is especially useful to college 
programs, both faculty and student, so that those involved can see what 
they have done, where they are going, and what they will have to do to 
reach their goals. 

Perhaps this backward glance would be useful with respect to 
three traditional programs which have taken place on campus during the 
past two weeks. 

The White Hats. When the White Hat program was initiated here 
in 1960, it had three specific aims. The first was to help the incoming 
freshmen develop a sense of class unity and loyalty to the college. The 
second was to help both the freshmen and the upperclassmen get to know 
each other through the use of members of practically every organization 
on campus as White Hats. The third aim was to have the White Hats 
protect the freshmen from the cruel and sometimes vicious hazing that had 
taken place here prior to the inception of this program. 

It would be unfair to say that the White Hats program was not at least 
moderately successful in fulfilling its aims. It does unify the freshmen — at 
least for the first year. It does help the freshmen get to know each other. 
It does protect the freshmen from hazing by the rest fo the upper- 
classmen. 

But, perhaps, a definition of terms would be useful here. By unity, 
does one mean a "oneness" among the two hundred individuals in each 
class? And is such unity important? Does the fact that all the freshmen 
men march on the upperclassmen's dorms mean that the class is truly a 
"unit," a "oneness"? Or is it merely a sign that the tradition of the en- 
lightened few leading the uninterested masses has again been carried forth? 

In the performance of their duty, the White Hats do protect the fresh- 
men from the upperclassmen. There are only two regrettable aspects of 
this protection. The first is that it should be necessary to have to protect 
anyone from his fellow classmate. The second is the manner in which 
many of the White Hats administer this protection. By belittling every 
freshman, those who would do the same and more are kept at bay — pre- 
sumably secure in the knowledge that each freshman is put in his proper 
place. Unfortunately, these individuals are not too secure — as was evi- 
denced by the belligerence of both sides when the freshmen men dared to 
walk over to the upperclassmen's dorms. 

In administering the initiation program, it is easy to lose sight of the 
fact that the White Hats do represent the image, not only of the students, 
but of the college as well. It is hoped that in the months to come, those 
involved in the White Hats program (the entire student body and the 
faculty) will take appropriate measures to revise this program where 
necessary. 

The SCA skit. The original aim of the SCA skit was to introduce the 
freshmen to the faculty in a light, humorous play which depicted the faculty 
going about their various activities. The success of the skit toward that 
aim this year has already been commented on by several people (see 
"La Vie Inquires"). 

In the coming months, it might be worthwhile for the members of the 
SCA to decide whether satire is to be equated to a commentary on things 
as they are, or to playing on a person's physical characteristics. One may 
wonder whether this type of skit is really the best way to introduce the 
freshmen to a faculty who will be instructing them "insipidly" for the next 
four years. 

It is unfortunate that the script had to be written on short notice. It is 
unfortunate that more care was not taken in regard to the feelings of others. 
It is indeed unfortunate that the Student Christian Association was respon- 
sible for sponsoring the skit. 

The "L" Club. The selling of Chapel seats to freshmen by the "L" 
Club has been a tradition on this campus for longer than most people can 
remember. The original aim of selling the tickets was to provide money 
for the purchase of "LV" letters and jackets for those students who merited 
the honor. Of late, the college has taken on the responsibility of purchas- 
ing the letters and jackets for the "L" Club. And yet, the sales go on. 

In addition, the public address system of the dining hall was illegally 
used to tell the freshmen that they were to appear at that night's frolics 
with either a dollar or their chapel seat tickets. Also, the Chapel was used 
as a market place where the freshmen were able to buy the Chapel seat 
tickets. 

Perhaps the "L" Club should revise some of its hard-sell tech- 
niques — permanently. 

Whether these changes have come about through a long series of im- 
perceptible events, or through a sudden abrupt movement, it is important 
that something be done to revise the programs, if they have gone astray, 
and set them gently back on their proper courses. It is important that the 
programs of this institution of higher learning reflect its aims. — P.F.P. 



JfetterA TJo J£a Vie 

To the Editor of La Vie: 

Some time ago Lebanon Valley College 
took a bold step to acquaint the stu- 
dents with the basic facts and principles 
of the cultural heritage of mankind" by 
initiating a subscription Artist Series. 
Then the step became a stagger and, after 
a few years, we were plunged back into 
the chicken corn soup cultural heritage 
that Annville has to offer. 

The abandoning of such an ambitious 
project on a big-city campus, surround- 
ed by a metropolis of cultural stimula- 
tion, would be an inconvenience. The 
abandoning of such a project at LVC 
was a disaster. 

If the Centennial Year is a year of re- 
birth, now is the time to resurrect the 
Artist Series. To have waited two years 
is too long. Let's not wait another hun- 
dred.

To the Editor of La Vie: 

We were promised bookcases for West 
Hall over a week ago. It has been noted 
that the residents of Railroad Street have 
theirs, but we do not. We know it only 
took 100 years to build a chapel, but 
how much longer must we stack our 
volumes of knowledge on the floor?

Math Department Gives 
Actuarial Examinations 

The department of mathematics has 
announced that the deadline, for the pre- 
liminary examinations of the Society of 
Actuaries application, is October 1. Ap- 
plications can be obtained at the math 
department office from Mrs. Lewin. The 
tests will be given in November. 

Part I of the examination covers alge- 
bra, trigonometry, analytical geometry, 
and calculus and is open to all students. 
Science majors who have taken Math 11 
are encouraged to take the test. 

Part II of the examination covers prob- 
ability and statistics for which a candi- 
date should have the college Math 37 
course. Further information can be ob- 
tained from the mathematics department. 

From the math department also comes 
the announcement that notebooks from 
the statistic courses last year are available 
in the statistics lab from Stuart Schoenly. 
They should be claimed by October 15. 



The Clash Of Issues 

by Ade Hedd 

In the past few months, the official line in Washington on Vietnam 
has changed to moderate optimism. Not only President Johnson and the 
Vice President, but acting Secretary of State, George Ball — the 'resident 
pessimist' in the Administration on this subject — have all started suggest- 
ing that "Hanoi is not only losing the war but knows it." 

The reasons for this more hopeful attitude are clear enough. The 
decision to bomb the oil stores around Hanoi and Haiphong has put an 
end to the agonizing discussions within the Adiministration about whether 
to risk it, and so far the bombing itself has not produced any of the worst 
consequences that postponed it for so long. But even with these numerous 
bombings of "strategic bridges and vital oil depots," Hanoi has not made 
any move toward peace talks. What we have witnessed instead, is a chain 
of sufferings being inflicted on poor peasant families, by setting fire to 
their homes, property and farms, and long, fantastic lists of the number of 
Vietnamese casualties (while American casualties are always "light"). 
The paradox of all these efforts which are supposed "to stop aggression 
from the North" is this: If North Vietnam has really been suffering all 
these losses for 12 years, since 1954 (and even before when the French 
took them on), but has not yet been forced to the peace table, does it not 
follow, reasonably, that the strength of North Vienam is usually wrongly 
assessed? 

Now, the confusion in Washington regarding Hanoi has become a 
major portion of the 'position file' (read by Ambassador Goldberg at the 
opening of the present session of the United Nations General Assembly) 
regarding North Vietnam. But the question is not whether Hanoi will 
come to the conference table; it is whether or not Hanoi has been provoked 
to the point of no-return. 

Political analysts and experts (not of the McNamara/Westmoreland 
school) have been seeing attacks on North Vietnam as bringing China 
closer into war with the United States. China has said she is now free to 
move in any direction, and the Soviet Union and the Eastern European 
Communist countries have offered to send volunteers to Hanoi if re- 
quested. There are no ominous signs of troop movements in China 
though, and Hanoi has indicated that it prefers to deal with the problem 
alone with its own men. This, of course, does not rule out the possibility 
of Hanoi changing its present position. 
No Civilian Casualties 



CONGRATULATIONS 

to SAI and Pi Gamma Mu, the two 

national award-winning organizations 
on campus. We are proud of these 
achievements. 



The Senate and Jiggerboard request 
that all students use the walks — not 
the grass — to get from one class to 
another. 



Faculty Notes 

In addition to the new faculty mention- 
ed in the last issue of La Vie there are 
three who went unmentioned. 

Miss Winifred Anne Helliar, the new 
Registrar, comes to LVC from Oakland 
Community College near Detroit where 
she was Admission Counselor. 

Mr. Richard Joyce, instructor in his- 
tory, was a graduate assistant at NYU 
before coming to LVC. 

The third addition is well known to the 
students. He is Dr. P. Lawrence Kreider, 
of Palmyra, the new college physician. 



There have been no Communist re- 
prisals against allied shipping in the 
vulnerable port of Saigon or the narrow 
winding Saigon River, and no enemy 
moves as yet against the allied oil stores 
just outside the South Vietnamese capital. 
Also, the danger of large civilian casual- 
ties around Hanoi and Haiphong, which 
could have hurt the United States cause 
in Japan, India, and elsewhere in Asia, 
has been avoided in the initial raids. 

Meanwhile, the political dissension in 
Saigon between the Ky government and 
the Buddhists has calmed down, and with 
the recent 'democratic' national elections 
(which sounded more like an elephant 
joke), Washington now starts talking of 
a "new mood of frustration and war 
weariness among the people of North 
Vietnam." Beyond this however, the spec- 
ulation among the experts is very cau- 
tious. Secretary Ball at a recent (tele- 
vised) interview would not support his 
reports from North Vietnam with any 
evidence. He was careful to stress that he 
had no information to indicate any change 
of policy based on the reported weariness 
in Hanoi; and changes of policy, he con- 
ceded, "may be quite a long time off."

Chinese/North Vietnamese Strategy 

The classic strategy of Chinese and 
North Vietnamese guerilla warfare is to 
avoid major clashes by large units when 
the balance of power runs against them, 
and to vanish and re-form into small 
units for sudden acts of terrorism or 
assaults on isolated units. This is, in fact, 
what the North Vietnamese did after the 
French beat them badly in the Red River 
delta in 1951. In the battle alone General 
Giap lost about 6,000 dead and 500 
captured, but he changed his tactics and 
waited three years before mounting his 
decisive offensive against the French at 
Dienbienphu. 

Even if all the oil stores and (so- 
called strategic) bamboo bridges are de- 
stroyed around Hanoi and Haiphong, the 
war can go on with smaller units, as it 
did for years when the guerillas were 
supplied by human bearers across forest 
trails. In this sense, the hopes in Wash- 
ington that the bombing of Hanoi and 
Haiphong may lead to an offer to ne- 
gotiate have very well turned out to be 
disappointing. 

On the other hand, Communist doc- 
trine preaches flexibility. There is no 
Germanic fight-to-the-last-bunker psy- 
chology in their teachings. We will re- 
member that Khrushchev did not hesitate 
to turn his missile ships around and take 
a humiliating defeat when Jack Kennedy 
challenged him in Cuba. And the Chinese 
agreed to negotiate a settlement of the 
Korean War when the United States seem- 
ed on the point of carrying the air war 
into Chinese territory. 

The vital question, therefore, is not 
how Washington feels, but what the 
enemy is doing; and nobody in Washing- 
ton can be sure, for never were so many 
major decisions taken in Washington on 
the basis of so little information about afl 
enemy that reacts in such different ways 
from the tactics of the United States. 

Now, a three-point peace package has 
been offered by the United States stating 
in short, that the U.S. is prepared to cease 
bombings and withdraw its forces, under 
U.N. supervision, if North Vietnam re- 
duces or ends its military action against 
South Vietnam. But the questions at issue 
are: a) Will Hanoi concede? b) Did the 
U.N. approve of U.S. entry and action 
in Vietnam (if this international body has 
to "supervise" the withdrawal of US- 
troops)? Let's wait and see.

Intramural Scene 

This year a seventeen sport intramural 
program will be conducted. At stakes are 
the Supremacy Trophy and seventeen in- 
dividual team trophies. The sports are 
divided into two categories — major sports 
and minor sports, according to the num- 
ber of participants. 

Points gained toward the supremacy 
trophy are as follows: 

Major sports Minor sports 

first 12 7 

second 9 5 

third 7 4 

fourth 5 3 

fifth 3 2 

sixth 1 1 

The major sports are touch football, 
volleyball, basketball, wrestling, bowling, 
swimming, softball, and track. The minor 
sports are ping pong, cross-country, hand- 
ball, squash, golf, tennis, badminton, 
weight lifting, and horseshoes. 
The seven teams participating are: 

Knights 

Philo 

Kalo 

Residents 

Frosh A 

Frosh B 

Sinfonia 

The intramural program is run by di- 
rector of intramurals, Joe Mowrer, who 
is assisted by Joe Torre. The intramural 
counsel is the organizing body made up 
of intramural representatives from each 
team. Coach Darlington is the head of 
the intramural program and has been do- 
ing a fine job building a sound program. 
Coach Darlington has mentioned that an 
intramural sports guide containing the 
rules and regulations for each of the seven- 
teen sports will be given to each male 
student on campus. 

Touch football schedules will be posted 
in each of the dorms. The first games 
began Wednesday, September 21. The 
tentative date for the cross-country meet 
is Tuesday, October 1 1 . 

If anyone has any trouble with the 
program or any questions, he should see 
Joe Mowrer or Coach Darlington. 



WAA Begins Program 
Of Intramural Sports 

The women's intramural program spon- 
sored by the Women's Athletic Associ- 
ation is getting an early start this year. 
Already signs are posted in most dorms 
for those interested to sign up for volley- 
ball, tennis, ping-pong, badminton, squash, 
and archery. Volleyball, the most popular 
of team sports will be handled by Sue 
Jones, Mary Ann Eastman, and Betty 
Levens. This sport will get underway as 
soon as the teams can be tabulated and 
an appropriate schedule can be made. 
The sport leaders for the other activities 
are as follows so if anyone has any ques- 
tions about the program or forgot to sign 
up she can see the following people: 
tennis — Janet Stein; ping-pong — Sue 
Abernathy; badminton — Maripat Smith; 
squash — Linda Rohrer; archery — Janet 
Hill. 

It is the hope of WAA that the intra- 
mural programs established for women 
students will be well attended and arouse 
enthusiasm from all. We are trying to 
make this year's program as well organ- 
ized as possible and we ask the cooper- 
ation of the participants to please observe 
the rules of the sport and the forfeit dead- 
lines — especially those of individual 
sports. These deadlines are provided in 
order that the sport runs smoothly and 
that a winner may be chosen without too 
much delay. WAA hopes to have all 
sports concluded by the second week in 
May so that awards may be given prop- 
e rly and permenently to the winners at 
the annual sports banquet on May 18. 

WAA would like to extend its best 
wishes to all the participants in the 1966- 
67 intramural program, and its sincere 
hope for an exciting and rewarding year. 




Valley girls face-off against West Shore 

Women's Hockey Team 
To Begin New Season 

As the classes began for the 1966-67 
academic year so did the drills and prac- 
tices of the 1966 women's field hockey 
team. Although they were anxious to start 
the reviewing of basic fundamentals of 
stickwork and footwork, the team was a 
little hampered by wet weather. The team 
was only allowed three days of practice 
before they met the West Shore hockey 
club in a scrimmage at home. The team 
looked a bit rusty but they have two 
more weeks in which to develop their 
skills before they begin their actual 
season. 

A complete list of those on the squad 
is not as yet available. However, the team 
has nine returning players from last year's 
squad — the first team to have a winning 
record for LVC in the past ten years. 
This year's team is also supplemented by 
about a dozen interested freshmen, some 
of who will no doubt gain a starting pos- 
ition. 

Returning this year for her second year 
of coaching LVC hockey is Mrs. Jacki 
Walters of Hershey. The team feels proud 
and fortunate to have her as coach for 
another year. 

The schedule for the 1966 hockey team 
is as follows: 

Sat., Oct. 1 — scrimmage (H) — 10:00 
Tues., Oct. 4 — Millersville (H)— 3.30 
Fri., Oct. 7 — Shippensburg (A)— 3:00 
Mon., Oct. 10— E-Town (H)— 3:30 
Thurs., Oct. 13— Muhlenberg (H)— 
4:00 

Wed., Oct. 19— Moravian (A)— 3:30 
Sat., Oct. 22— Messiah (H)— 10:00 
Sat., Oct. 29— Dickinson (A)— 10:00 



Group Selects Shay 
To Head Committee 

Dr. Ralph S. Shay has been appointed 
chairman of the program committee for 
the Thirteenth Annual Round Table Con- 
ference on Chinese-American Cultural 
Relations to be held on the campus of 
the University of Maryland in May, 
1967. 

The Round Table Conference, attend- 
ed by approximately 200 scholars of Chi- 
nese language and culture each year, is 
sponsored by the University of Maryland, 
China Institute in America, the Sino- 
American Cultural Society, and the 
American Association of Teachers of 
Chinese Language and Culture. Professor 
Shay is completing a two-year term as a 
member of the executive committee of 
the last named organization. 

Dr. Shay has been an active participant 
in the Round Table Conferences in re- 
cent years. Last May he presided at the 
morning session of the annual meeting. 
In previous conferences he has presented 
papers and served as discussant of papers 
presented by leading college professors 
and other distinguished scholars from 
across the country. 



Tryouts for the fall play presented 
by Wig and Buckle will be held to- 
night, 7:30, in room B-l. 

The play, The Shrike, will be pre- 
sented November 4 and 5.

Valley Harriers Strive 
To Run Winning Season 

The overland version of the Lebanon 
Valley College Flying Dutchman will 
have to sprout winged feet in order to 
compete against the tough opposition 
which faces them this year. In its third 
season under coach J. Robert McHenry 
the cross-country team is aiming for a 
winning season — something they were un- 
able to do last year when the team broke 
even with a 6-6 record. 

Under the leadership of co-captains 
Paul Murphy and Dick Williams the 
Dutchmen have Jim Waring, Jim Davis, 
and Leslie Bush back from last year's 
top seven which competed in the M.A.C. 
championships. Back from last year and 
showing vast improvement are runners 
Tom Micka and Carl Sabold while Leroy 
Frey is pushing to be one of the top five 
runners of the Dutchman squad. 

An untested crop of freshmen consist 
of Agu Laane, Terry Nitka, Mike Burns, 
Colin Sloan, Rich Crowther. These men 
will certainly add depth to the squad and 
can be counted on to push the returning 
veterans. 





Cross countrymen head for a 
new season 

The schedule for the cross-country 
team is as follows: 

Sat., Oct. 8— Drexel and P.M.C. (A) 
Wed., Oct. 12 — Delaware Valley and 

Rider (H) 
Sat., Oct. 15— Elizabethtown (H) 
Wed., Oct. 19— Gettysburg (A) 
Sat., Oct. 22— Moravian (A) 
Sat., Oct. 29— Muhlenberg (A) 
Sat., Nov. 5— Albright (H) 
Wed., Nov. 9— Ursinus (H) 
Sat., Nov. 12 — Dickinson (A) 
Fri., Nov. 18— MASCAC 

Chain Foundation Lists 
Scholarship Opportunity 

The Chain Scholarship Foundation is 
currently awarding scholarships of up to 
1 ,000 to enable needy students to complete 
their college education. 

Seniors in need of funds who meet the 
following qualifications are eligible for the 
scholarships: planning to seek employment 
upon graduation rather than undertaking 
postgraduate work; if their grades are of 
degree status; and if, when able, are will- 
ing to help Chain support future needy 
students. 

The Chain Scholarship Service has been 
in existence for four years and is avail- 
able in over three hundred colleges and 
universities. Its approach to the scholar- 
ship program is unique in two concepts; 
faith in the average man and faith in his 
integrity to assume a moral rather than a 
legal obligation, and thus become a vital 
link in a chain reaction which can grow to 
pass along an endless continuum of help 
from those who were once in similar cir- 
cumstances.

LV defense subdues Wilkes quarterback 

Dutch Flier 

by Bob Linger 

Wilkes College, which has established itself as the best small college 
team in the state, foiled LVC's attempt at an undefeated season on Satur- 
day. Our Dutchmen played the Colonels on even terms for 59 minutes 
and 59 seconds and it took the last play in the game to finally decide the 
winner. Although defeated, the Dutchmen have now established them- 
selves as the second best team in the Middle Atlantic Conference. 

Wilkes College lost a game last year, yet played well enough to be 
ranked nationally both in the defense and offense departments. It is this 
observer's opinion that it is better to get your losses behind you, rather than 
to sail along undefeated and come to a screeching halt. The Valley team 
this year obviously has a tremendous potential and with the right attitude, 
it could proceed to earn one of the best records any LVC football team 
has enjoyed in recent years. 

Several players gave commendable performances in the game. The 
team was headed by seniors Dan Chambers, John Havens, Bob Hawk, 
and Bob Martalus, with Larry Painter acting very capably as captain. 
The team also owed much to the presence of Pete Giraffa, John Fasnacht, 
and Bob Mead. Sophomores lending their support were Dennis Tulli, 
Tom Falato, Rich Basta, Hal Todd, Gary Gunther, Bruce Decker, Joe 
Torre, and Steve Brandsberg. Freshmen Barry Burdick, Jack Howie, 
Terry Light, Dave Murphy, and Jerry Beardsley fared well in their initial 
game for LVC. Most important are those men who are NOT playing but 
encourage the team from the sidelines. Without their support at the games 
and on the practice field, no team could be a winner.

India: Three months ago, following 
Prime Minister Gandhi's visit to the 
United States, the Peace Corps was asked 
to augment its operations in India to help 
alleviate that country's chronic food short- 
age. By the end of 1966 more than 1,100 
volunteers specializing in agriculture and 
nutrition work will be working in India. 

Students: During fiscal 1965 some 
91,000 foreign students and scholars came 
to the United States to study and 22,000 
Americans studied abroad. 

Washington: A $3.5 million com- 
promise foreign aid authorization bill, 
representing a net reduction of nearly 
$100 million in the funds which may be 
approved to meet the President's budget 
request, was agreed to at the end of 
August. The Senate approved the com- 
promise bill on September 7, by a vote of 
33-25. 

The compromise measure combines 
military and economic assistance in one 
bill authorizing $875 million and $2,624 
respectively; fixes a general 1 year au- 
thorization, and extends for 3 years both 
the alliance for Progress and the Devel- 
opment Loan Fund.

Australia Resident 
Enters LVC Class 

One of our foreign students this year 
is from Australia. She is Judy Blasingame, 
a member of the freshman class and a 
liberal arts major. Although she is an 
Australian resident at the present time, 
she is a United States citizen and went to 
Australia from Pittsburgh when her father 
was transferred there by his company. 

Judy attended Australian schools for 
four years and therefore has much to say 
about the schools there. From ninth 
through eleventh grade she attended what 
was called a public school, but it was 
really a church related, almost Victorian, 
all-girl private school. Its only aim was 
to produce a young lady. 

For twelfth grade she attended a co- 
educational school in a large city where 
her family had moved. It was not a 
government or a church sponsored school 
and its aim was to produce academic re- 
sults. It was more on a university than a 
high school level and was very demanding. 

Judy says that the educational system 
in Australia was very much like that of 
other European countries in its form of 
standardized curricula and testing system. 
She says that the exams for the year are 
very demanding and thorough. They 
seemed also to be more like a college 
exam than a high school one. 

When asked about her hobbies, Judy 
replied that she liked water skiing, acting, 
and English literature. She was respon- 
sible for helping to found a drama group 
at her first school in Australia. 

When asked why she came to Lebanon 
Valley College, she replied that she liked 
the advantages and atmosphere of a 
small school better than a larger school or 
a university. 



GermanClergyman 
Addresses Campus 

This fall, Dr. Hagen Staack, Professor 
of Religion at Muhlenberg College, will 
be the speaker for the Religion and Life 
Lecture on Tuesday, October 4. Dr. 
Staack attended the most recent Ecumen- 
ical Council in Rome as a Deputy Ob- 
server. 

Beginning Sunday, October 9, and last- 
ing through Tuesday, October 11, a pro- 
gram entitled "Mission to North America" 
will be presented on campus. This pro- 
gram is being arranged in cooperation 
with the department of Evangelism of the 
EUB Church and is making available to 
our student body one of the overseas 
delegates to the forthcoming General 
Conference of the EUB Church, in Chi- 
cago, Illinois, November 8-17. Our guest 
speaker will be the Reverend Mr. Her- 
mann Sticker, pastor of the EUB Church 
in Karlsruhe, Germany. 

Mr. Sticker was born at Tuebeingen, 
Germany in 1927, and received his theo- 
logical training at the Seminary in Reut- 
lingen, Germany. He has attended an in- 
terpreter's school, and before being called 
to the ministry, worked as a free-lance 
translator. 

For the past several years Mr. Sticker 
has served as editor of Fackel, a joint 
EUB and Methodist publication for Jr. 
High youth. 

On Sunday evening, October 9, at 7 
p.m. and on Monday evening, October 
10, at 7:30 p.m., Mr. Sticker will speak 
in the Lecture Hall of the Chapel. Also 
on Monday, at 2:30 p.m. in the fellowship 
room of the Chapel, he will be available 
for conversation. Concluding this pro- 
gram Dr. Sticker will be the October 11 
chapel speaker. 



Fairlamb, Valley Pianist, 
Presents Faculty Recital 

The department of music announces a 
faculty recital by William Fairlamb, 
pianist, Sunday, October 2 at 3:30 p.m. 
in Engle Hall. 

Mr. Fairlamb will perform four move- 
ments from Beethoven's "Sonata," op. 27, 
No. 1, and two selections by Debussy, 
"Preludes, book II" and "Etudes, book I." 

Another feature of the program is 
Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition." 
This composition was written originally 
for piano in 1874, and published, after the 
composer's death, in 1886. The music was 
inspired by an exhibition of paintings and 
sketches by a friend of Mussorgsky's, Vic- 
tor Hartmann. One selection, Promenade, 
is meant to represent the composer stroll- 
ing from one picture to another, and re- 
curs frequently during the piece.

La Vie Inquires 



Discretion . . . 

Friday night of NBC week, I mean Freshman Orientation Week, 
"Hello Tondelayo" was presented to the delight of some and the disgust 
of others. 

Many enthusiastic responses were heard from veteran SCA skit per- 
formers. This skit got more laughs than any other they could remember. 
The audience was held attentive, rising and falling with the action of 
the skit. 

Yet many people, cast and audience alike, felt that portions of the 
play were not in good taste — that although every year the faculty and 
administration are mocked, this year's skit went too far. The characteri- 
zations were no longer humorous, but offensive. 

Members of the faculty and student body were asked whether they 
thought the skit should have been accepted as good natured fun or whether 
they considered it offensive. 

Mrs. O'Donnell: The humor of such efforts as the SCA skit rests on 
exaggerating and ridiculing individual foibles, mannerisms, and enthu- 
siasms, and therefore always runs the risk of stepping over the line 
between the acceptable and the offensive. I personally enjoy the nonsense 
and the highly distorted portraits, questioning the tastefulness only of those 
jokes that are based on things out of the individual's control, such as phy- 
sical characteristics, or that intrude on the spirit of fun by making a serious 
comment on personal motivation, integrity, etc. But this is private taste, 
always arbitrary and highly subjective. 

One thing that seems somewhat regrettable is that the skit is staged so 
early in the year that the freshmen, the "target" audience, are not yet ready 
to enjoy the "In-jokes." I wonder how long it takes them to realize the 
upperclassmen are just having fun with some of their favorite people on 
campus? 

Dr. Piel: The quality of the produc- 
tion was less than I should have expected 
from the writers — who are really very 
capable. The personal remarks were in 
bad taste and quite cruel. No one can help 
his physical make-up. The remarks "dumb 
Dutchman," "How's your puppy, Carl?" 
were beyond the bounds of propriety and 
very offensive. 

The song "I'm a Woman Unfulfilled" 
was also too much. The faculty expect to 
have fun poked at them; they have proven 
themselves good sports many times; they 
enjoy wit and satire when these are clever. 
The basic idea was timely and ingenious 
but its development showed haste, des- 
peration for something to say, crudity 
and lack of good taste. 

Dr. Bemesderfer: After giving serious 
consideration to the question posed re- 
lative to the SCA skit, I would like to 
express myself as follows. I have worked 
with the students who produced the skit 
and feel that this year's production, as 
were those of previous years, was pre- 
sented to be humorous, not offensive. 
The great majority of faculty and ad- 
ministrative personnel portrayed in it 
accepted it in the way it was intended, 
that is as humorous. Many compliments 
were received by the students from these 
persons. A few negative reactions were 
also received. All in all the skit serves 
a useful purpose and gives a respite to 
freshmen who are already in the throes 
of being initiated and indoctrinated. 

Alan Hague: The question itself lies 
in the interpretation of those faculty and 
administrative personnel who were satir- 
ized by the skit. Miss Faust, target of 
most of the jibes, responded well and at 
the conclusion of the skit toted an "Oust 
Faust" banner herself. This attitude, ex- 
emplified by her good-natured reception, 
should serve as an example for her fel- 
lows in jest. After all, would the SCA 
(could the SCA) intend any depiction to 
be inimical to campus relations? The 
remainder of those people selected for 
slaughter should have taken the vignettes 
as they were intended, exaggerations of 
some characteristic traits. 

The student body, especially the frosh, 
received a better insight into the idio- 
synocrasies of our campus administrators 
as more attention was drawn to these 
staffs. If those staff members did not 
take the jokes as caricatures of them- 
selves (of which they should never be 
ashamed) perhaps they are as immature 
as the first grade youngsters who cried 
because of the mocks of his classmates. 

Any individual should be proud of his

all subsequent meetings. 



personality and the traits that are outward 
manifestations of his self. Pride in one's 
self and pride in one's bearing and man- 
nerisms should dispell any mockery by 
other people. Those who cannot respond 
correctly to the jests of others are not 
proud of the distinction they own and 
their false image is rightfully exposed 
and cracked, whereas, those who are 
singled out and proud of it, know a cer- 
tain well-being characteristic of a person 
confident in himself. 

Mark Holtzman: A skit such as the 
SCA performs yearly aids in compli- 
menting the "latent" student-teacher re- 
lationships within a small campus. Hardly 
in bad taste, it also acts here as an out- 
let students seldom are given the chance 
to experience. In the future I would enjoy 
the same type skit with one exception — 
reversing the procedure; the professors I 
am certain could satirize the students in 
an equal "all in fun" manner. This would 
provide an opportunity for anyone of- 
fended to retaliate and promote enter- 
tainment for all. 

Larry Bachtell: As co-author of the 
SCA skit, of course my opinions are 
prejudiced. I can only state the point of 
view from which "Hello, Tondelayo!" 
was written. On that Sunday night when 
Chuck and I sat down to write the show, 
entertainment was uppermost in our 
minds. The SCA skit is offered as a 
spoof on LVC — her good points and her 
bad points. It would benefit neither the 
SCA, Chuck nor myself to be purposely 
offensive to anyone. 

The presentation of faculty members 
was not intended as a burlesque on se- 
lected individuals, but only as a means of 
extracting humor from the entire faculty- 
administration group. The portraits were 
naturally overdrawn, largely false. As far 
as I know, Dr. Faber does not sleep with 
a whistle, nor does Dean Faust periodic- 
ally raid the hotel. Such portrayals were 
just as preposterous as the entire plot. I 
find it hard to believe that anyone could 
take offense since everything mentioned 
in the skit was either common knowledge 
or pure fabrication. 

I remind everyone that Dr. Bemesderfer 
first viewed "Hello, Tondelayo!" in final 
form, and gave his approval to the skit. 
If any person or group took offense at the 
show, I can only offer my sincere apol- 
ogies and hope that my explanation will 
help these people realize the spirit behind 
the writing and producing of "Hello, Ton- 
delayo!" 

Jim Newcomer: Although satire is 
intended to be neither invective nor of- 
fensive, neither should it be completely 
accepted as "all is fun." Laughter is not 
the end of satire, but rather a means by 
which a more important end can be 
achieved. Because satire seeks to improve 
a situation, it acts as both a catalytic and 
cleansing agent. The result of satire on 



Student Teachers Begin 
First Semester Program 

From the Department of Elementary 
Education comes the information that 
student teaching in the Elementary Edu- 
cation program is done in a block program 
which extends for one full semester, the 
first semester, each year. 

The student teachers report to their 
respective cooperating teachers in the as- 
signed school district on the first day of 
the public school term. They attend all 
workshops or planned sessions which are 
attended by cooperating teachers. The 
purpose of the program is to experience as 
nearly as possible the entire educational 
program of the elementary school. 

Teaching responsibilities and classroom 
responsibilities are assumed by the student 
teacher according to a planned accumula- 
tive schedule. A minimum of four weeks 
of full classroom responsibility is a re- 
quirement for completion of the student 
teaching program. 

The 1966 student teaching program will 
begin on Tuesday, September 6th and con- 
tinue to the end of the first semester, Janu- 
ary 13, 1967. 

The following will be student teaching 
first semester: 

Annville-Cleona School District: Donna 
K. Diehl, Elaine A. Brenner, Sandra J. 
Renninger, Patrica (Thornton) Dellinger, 
Lynn V. Dubbs, Lois E. Quickel, and 
James Waring. Derry Township Public 
Schools: Carol L. Toth, Patricia A. Todd, 
and Carol A. Burian. Northern Lebanon 
Joint School District: Alan S. Donaldson. 
Palmyra Area School System: Phyllis A. 
Pickard, Donna L. Curry. 



Testing Service Reveals 
Law School Test Dates 

The Law School Admission Test, re- 
quired of candidates for admission to most 
American Law schools, will be given 
throughout the nation on November 12, 
1966, February 11, 1967, April 8, 1967, 
and August 5, 1967. 

Educational Testing Service advises 
candidates to make separate application 
to each law school of their choice, and to 
ascertain from each whether it requires 
the Law School Admission Test. Since 
many law schools select their freshman 
classes in the spring preceding entrance, 
candidates for admission to next year's 
classes are advised to take either the 
November or the February test. 

The morning session of the Law School 
Admission Test measures the ability to 
use language and to think logically. The 
afternoon session includes measures of 
writing ability and general background. 
A Bulletin of Information including 
sample questions and registration in- 
formation, and a registration form should 
be obtained six weeks in advance of a 
testing date from Law School Admission 
Test, Box 944, Educational Testing Ser- 
vice, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 

Registration forms and fees must reach 
ETS two weeks before the desired test ad- 
ministration date. Registration forms 
may be obtained from Dr. Ralph E. Shay, 
chairman of the department of history and 
political science and the pre-law advisor at 
the college. 



the college campus is a healthier college 
climate. But there exists a thin line, 
admittedly a very thin one, which differ- 
entiates legitimate satire from sarcasm. 
Laughter also is the vehicle of sarcasm, 
but it is laughter filled with personal abuse 
and vituperation rather than a cleansing 
agent. Satire, misused, can be an offensive 
weapon. 

To the extent that several lines from 
the SCA skit implied relationships that 
have no basis, in fact, stressed personal 
characteristics to the point of offense, or 
pointedly dwelt on selected individuals, 
the SCA skit approached that thin line of 
satiric illegitimacy. But it is legitimate, 
however, to portray personal physical 
traits for the purpose of audience iden- 
tification. And to be sure, mannerisms of 
professors and campus attitudes toward 
the centennial, chapel, individual depart- 
ments, and curfew hours are completely 
within the legitimate realm of satire. Al- 
though there were several near-departures 
from the inoffensive, in its entirety the 
SCA skit was successful, wholesome 
satire.

Southeastern ACS 
Marks Anniversary 

The Lebanon Valley campus will host the annual meeting of the 
Southeastern section of the American Chemical Society on November 3. 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the ACS section and the 90th 
anniversary of the society itself. The event is being sponsored at LVC by 
the chemistry department in conjunction with the centennial observance of 
the college. 

Three major events have been scheduled throughout the day. Two 
panel discussions in the afternoon will be directed to the general topic of 
what chemical industry looks for in its new employees, and what it expects 
of them after they have been hired. 



The panels will have four members 
each. D. M. Essick, Armstrong Cork 
Company, Lancaster; Robert Matteson, 
Sun Oil Company of Philadelphia; and 
Dr. R. Y. Thompson, E. I. DuPont de 
Nemours of Wilmington will be on both 
panels. Joseph Kopala, Winthrop Labora- 
tories of Myerstown will be the fourth 
member of the 4 p.m. panel while Dr. 
Eugene Wells, Winthrop Laboratories, will 
be the fourth member of the 1:30 p.m. 
panel. 

The discussion at 1:30 will be directed 
toward the high school level and the one 
at 4 p.m. toward the college level. Chem- 
istry teachers and interested students have 
been invited from over 100 high schools 
in the section and the nine degree-granting 
colleges in the section. 

At 7 p.m., a dinner meeting will be 
held in the college dining hall. Dr. 
William Sparks, President of ACS, and 
Dr. B. R. Stannerson, Executive Secretary 
of ACS will be guest speakers at the meet- 
ing. Dr. Sparks will speak on "Age and 
Productivity of Chemists" and Dr. Stan- 
nerson will speak on the national aspects 
of the local section program. 

The American Chemical Society was 
founded in 1876 and chartered by the 
federal government in 1937. It is dedi- 
cated to the scientific, educational, and 
professional advancement of chemistry 
and chemical engineering. Counting over 
100,000 chemists and chemical engineers 
as members, it is organized into 167 local 




Dr. Wiliam Sparks 

sections. 

The Southeastern section of the Am- 
erican Chemical Society consists of nine 
counties in southeastern Pennsylvania 
and presently has a membership of 375. 
Chairman of this section is F. Melvin 
Sweeney of Armstrong Cork Company, 
Lancaster, and vice-chairman is Dr. Robert 
Griswold. The colleges in this section 
which grant degrees in chemistry or 
chemical engineering are, besides Leb- 
anon Valley, Franklin & Marshall, Eliz- 
abethtown, Gettysburg, Wilson, Messiah, 
Millersvile, Shippensburg, and Dickinson. 



Calendar Committee 
Proposes Revisions 

Last year an ad hoc Committee on Calendar Revision was appointed 
to examine the college calendar and to make proposals for consideration. 
This Committee consisted of eight faculty members and a student repre- 
sentative. 

In the process of investigating our college calendar, the Committee 
analyzed and catalogued the advantages and disadvantages of our present 
calendar, as well as those of other academic calendars. The Committee 
also analyzed the endeavors of the earlier committee, studied college 
catalogues, reviewed articles in professional journals, consulted persons 
who had studied or taught under the various types of calendars, and active- 
ly solicited opinions from all sides. 



The results of this study have led the 
Committee to include in its final report to 
President Miller the following specific 
recommendations: 

1. That the semester system, with sum- 
mer session, be continued as the basic 
framework of the college calendar. 

2. That the present practice of no 
Saturday morning class schedule be con- 
tinued. 

3. That a shorter period be scheduled 
for freshman orientation. 

4. That registration be reduced to one 
day each semester. 

5. That final examinations be arranged 
on a six-day schedule, specifically Thurs- 
day through Wednesday, with two-hour 
periods. 

6. That the time gained through imple- 
mentation of recommendations 3, 4, and 
5 be assigned to a Reading Period sched- 
uled Saturday through Wednesday prior 
to final examinations. 

(The policy for the Reading Period 
might be defined along the following sug- 
gested lines: (a) after the Reading Period 
begins no term papers, projects, or tests 
shall be due or receivable; (b) the period 
should be a time of organized summary, 
review, and analysis in preparation for 
final examinations.) 

7. That a committee be appointed to 
construct a proposed Special Term to be 
introduced in January. 

(To facilitate the implementation of the 
Special Term, certain technical questions 
will require further study.) 

8. That, as necessary to accommodate 
the Special Term, the first semester run 
approximately September 1 to December 
18, and the second semester continue es- 
sentially as at present. 

Recently, President Miller has an- 



Players To Present 
Homecoming Play 

Members of the Wig and Buckle Soc- 
iety are again involved in the Home- 
coming activities. Rehearsals for their pro- 
duction of The Shrike are progressing 
steadily as the cast prepares for the 
November 4 and 5 performances. 

Turning from the comedy of last year, 
the club chose a drama by Joseph Kramm. 
The Shrike unfolds, revealing the con- 
flicts faced by a man who has failed in 
his attempted suicide. Jim Downs, played 
by Gere Reist, battles to maintain his 
ideals in the "observation ward" of a city 
hospital. Unable to convince the examin- 
ing doctors, Bonnie Baker, Ron Poorman, 
Joel Riedel, and Tom Shatto, that he has 
returned to a stable mental condition, he 
is faced with a choice between two evils: 
being sent to the State Hospital or being 
released in the custody of the wife he no 
longer loves. 

Pixie Hunsicker appears as Ann Downs, 
clinging to her husband, reaching out in a 
last desparate measure to possess him. 
Tensions build as Jim faces his agonizing 
decision. 

For this production, Wig and Buckle 
has chosen a student director, Dave 
Walker. 

Performances will be held at 8:30 p.m. 
in Engle Hall. Advance sale tickets will 
be available. 



nounced his acceptance of the Commit- 
tee's suggestion to appoint a new Com- 
mittee to construct a tentative proposal 
or proposals with respect to the Special 
Term. This Committee's report will then 
be presented to the faculty for debate 
and action. 



World Watcher 

Philippines: 

In a joint press release on September 
16, Secretary of State Rusk and Philippine 
Secretary of Foreign Affairs Narciso 
Ramos announced an exchange of notes 
formalizing the understandings of 1959 
which deal with U.S. bases in the Philip- 
pines. The U.S. agreed to amend the 
Military Bases Agreement of 1947 by re- 
ducing the term the U.S. will lease the 
bases from 99 years (dating from 1947) 
to 25 years from the date of the exchange 
of notes. The U.S. also reaffirmed its 
policy of mutual defense. 
Latin America: 

Some 30 individual states in the U.S. 
have for the past 2V2 years been teaming 
up with nations and provinces throughout 
Latin America to promote that region's 
development. This is being acheived 
through a programme called "Partners for 
the Alliance" which emphasizes self-help 
projects. 
United States: 

President Johnson, on September 13, 
signed into law a new extension of the 
U.S. Peace Corps. The bill authorizes an 
appropriation of $110 million for the fiscal 
year which started July 1 and provides for 
16,000 volunteers and trainees — an in- 
crease of 1,200 over last fiscal year. 
East- West (European) Trades: 

The United States government does not 
believe it is illegal or unpatriotic for 
Americans to sell or buy 'peaceful' goods 
from the Communist countries of Eastern 
Europe. The U.S. State Department in a 
recent communique maintains that in- 
dividuals and small groups which have 
tried through boycotts, threats of econ- 
omic reprisals, and other intimidation to 
block legal trade in goods from Com- 
munist countries are harming the Amer- 
ican National interest by obstruction a 
foreign policy that has been developed by 
four administrations since World War II. 
The foreign policy referred to is aimed at 
influencing Eastern European societies to 
develop along paths that are favorable to 
world peace. 
China: 

Population problems in China may be 
summarized by a fact terrifying in its 
implications: too many people demand- 
ing too much from too little land- — the 
density of population averages about 2000 
persons per square mile. About 90 per 
cent of the total population lives in the 
eastern third of the country. This allo- 
cation of distribution raises the density of 
China proper (and the more habitable 
part of northeastern China) to approx- 
imately 540 persons per square mile. 
Sierra Leone: 

As an extension of Fourah Bay Col- 
lege, the University College of Sierra 
Leone, a new nine-story building which 
will be used to house the faculties of 
economics is at its finishing stage. The 
building, at its completion, will be named 
the John F. Kennedy Memorial Building.

GREAT SOCIETY 

The Uses Of Power 

by Ade Hedd 

Presenting the budget for the fiscal year 1966 to the U.S. Congress, 
President Johnson, referring to space research and technology, said, "This 
nation has embarked on a bold programme of space exploration and re- 
search which holds promise of rich reward in many fields of American 
life. Our boldness is clearly indicated by the broad scope of our pro- 
gramme and by our intent to send men to the moon within this decade." 
He further went on to say, "Expenditures are continuing to increase. How- 
ever, we have built up momentum and are concentrating on our highest 
priority goals. Therefore we will no longer need to increase space outlays 
by huge sums each year in order to meet present objectives." 

Expenditures for the space programme in 1966 are estimated at $4.1 
billion, an increase of $200 million over the estimate for 1965. The in- 
crease in 1966 though is expected to be mainly for payments for equipment 
and services contracted for in previous years. But apart from the civilian 
budget, there was further provision for a sum of nearly $7 billion ap- 
propriated for research and development in the huge National Defense 
budget, a small proportion of which will be spent to promote U.S. defense 
capabilities in space. Research on re-entry and recovery of space craft 
will be accelerated, outlays for the Titan III space booster will continue 
at a high level, and redevelopment of the initial Defense Communications 
Satellite system will continue. 

President Johnson apparently took justifiable pride in America's 
space accomplishments when he called attention also to some of the prac- 
tical benefits that are beginning to flow in weather prediction and com- 
munications, etc. This certainly is a remarkable achievement. And as I 
see it, the chief thrust of President Johnson's argument was that the United 
States continue its participation in the space race even to the extent of 
exceeding the lines charted by President Kennedy when he called for a 
manned lunar landing by 1970. 

Does this goal (of going to the moon) justify the expenditure of over 
$5 billion which exceeds the total approximation in the two vital fields 
such as health and education ($5.1 billion) taken together? I would even 
question the urgency of the Apollo project designed to put a man on the 
moon by 1970 and to which two-thirds of the appropriation is assigned in 
spite of the scientific uncertanties that surround it. 

I do not pretend to know whether or not the Russians are racing the 
Americans to the moon. But I certainly know that there are more urgent 
needs in American National life than those posed by the arbitrary goal of 
a moon landing (or possible invasion) 
Every progressive American, and I dare 



say all progressive peoples of the world, 
would prefer faster progress toward a 
"Great Society" here on our own planet. 
Political planners have now reached a 
point where they are talking about a peace 
zone in outer space, readily forgetting 
that we have not yet created a peace 
zone in inner space (earth). We live in a 
world, we must not forget, disrupt with 
hate, stupidity and wretchedness. While 
some people talk of affluence, others are 
learning to live uncomfortably within the 
razor edges of poverty and squalor. These 
unkind extremes of human existence 
ought, certainly, to be a living part of our 
constant considerations. 
America's double-standings: 

While the United States helps develop- 
ing countries by gifts and loans, she under- 
takes a "war on poverty" programme also 
at home. But on the other hand, she con- 
dones the causes of the perils of humanity 
by giving economic support to the "White 
Supremacist" government of South Africa, 
and also aiding the Portugese Administra- 
tion of Angola and other Portugese dom- 
i inated territories. At home the war on 
poverty is badly aimed in the sense that 



not only are more slums created (and 
existing ones made worse), but liberal 
homeowners and estate agents are capital- 
izing on the "Great Society" programme 
thereby inflicting greater economic strains 
on present sufferers. 

Unfortunately, no one in Washington 
appears to know what the real cause of all 
the trouble is, and Negro leaders them- 
selves are somehow unconscious of this 
cause. The latter seem to believe that 
the real answer lies in marches, sit-ins 
and open housing (in the sense of intt- 
grating). Obviously this is the result of 
"white" power conditioning and "whites" 
too believe that Negro equality (or rather 
enhancement) is achieved as soon as he 
can live and behave like the "white" man. 

Consequently, Negro areas and schools 
are being neglected in a number of 
cases, because of the heavenly pilgrimage 
to "white" schools and neighborhoods. 
They call this 'integration', forgetting that 
what the average Negro in America needs 
in the first place is a sense of identity 
which cannot be assumed by the constant 
subjection to forced obligations and con- 
(Continued on Page 4) 



Resignation 



I would like to welcome the new editor of La Vie Collegienne, Paul 
Pickard. I have decided to resign my position because of academic sched- 
uling. Five full days of classes makes it impossible for me to spend the 
time on the newspaper necessary as editor. Good coverage of campus 
activities is difficult when classes prevent one from spending time in 
interviews and news gathering. 

Paul, who has been associate editor this year, takes over the helm of 
the paper. Look for many innovations in the paper stemming from Paul's 
determination to keep La Vie in the mainstream of Lebanon Valley 
College activities. 

May I take this opportunity to again ask for student help for La Vie. 
The paper has a hard-working staff but is still painfully short of the workers 
needed to put the bits and pieces of news and stories together into an in- 
formative newspaper. It is a long job for just four or five people. The 
newspaper is published for the benefit of the students. Unlike many college 
newspapers, La Vie does not go to all alumni and friends of the college. 
The paper is yours and it needs your active support. — R.A.S. 



aQetterd ZJo J*a Vie 

The following letters are replies to the 
article "Change" which appeared in the 
September 29 issue of La Vie. La Vie 
does not find it necessary to comment 
on them since the attacks they contain 
do not align reasonably with the dictates 
of the article under censure. 

To the editor of La Vie 

In regard to the September 29 article 
entitled Change we would like to inform 
P.F.P. that in spite of his class standing 
he understands very little about tradition 
and freshmen spirit. 

As stated by the administration, stu- 
dents and freshmen, the White Hat pro- 
gram as initiated this year was more than 
"moderately" successful in fulfilling its 
aims. 

The White Hat program is the only in- 
itiatory force to unite an incoming class 
at LVG and give it an impetus in be- 
coming an organized class. It is not the 
White Hats that one should criticize for 
lack of unity in subsequent years. 

Furthermore, we feel that the author 
of Change should consult with Mr. Web- 
ster before assuming a definition of unity. 
When people are exposed to a new situa- 
tion they are naturally going to band to- 
gether to put across a point, and we feel 
that class spirit and organization was 
clearly shown by the march of the frosh 
on the men's dorms. This was not a bel- 
ligerent act organized by a few leaders 
who dragged along the masses — but was 
an expression of interest and unity on the 
part of the entire freshman class. 

The entire White Hat program was 
placed under obvious scrutinization this 
year by the administration in general and 
the student deans in particular. A lot of 
time and hard work went into this pro- 
gram by the officers and the organization 
as a whole, to assure that this year's pro- 
gram would be one of the best. From 
all available sources it seems that the or- 
ganization has accomplished its goals. 

We would suggest to Mr. P. that he 
look at a situation more deeply and a 
little more rationally before he attacks an 
organization, its members, and its goal in 
another insipid article.

To the editor of La Vie 

As members of the Varsity "L" Club, 
we wish to answer to certain charges made 
in the September 29, issue of La Vie. In 
the first place, the club is not the "L" 
Club, but rather the Varsity "L" Club. 
This change was made early last year, 
but obviously facts don't travel as quickly 
as rumor. 

Secondly, the sale of chapel seats is not 
undertaken as it had been in the past with 
the idea of paying for "LV" letters and 
jackets, but instead, for the acquisition of 
funds in order to produce a commend- 
able Homecoming Dance which would be 
worthy of the college. It will be noted 
that with such funds, last year's Home- 
coming Dance, "Homecoming A go-go" 
was more successful than previous ones. 

Thirdly, the charge of hard-sale techni- 
ques is a ridiculous one. Verbal encourage- 
ment was the only method used. As it 
was, there still remained many unin- 
timidated freshmen without chapel seats. 
Perhaps the use of the dining hall public 
address system was "illegal," and also 
using the chapel as a "market place" 
wasn't in the best of taste, but these 
measures were taken out of necessity and 
are not to be taken out of context. 

We suggest that before anyone begins 
to berate any organization on campus, 
they should first take enough time to find 
out its correct name, and the reasons be- 
hind some of its programs.

To the editor of La Vie 

We would like to express our opinion 
concerning an article which appeared in 
the second issue of La Vie. It referred to 
abrupt changes upsetting rational plan- 
ning. More plainly, it stated views oppos- 
ing the actions of the White Hats and 
the "L" club, and the quality of the satire 
presented in the SCA skit. 

We realize that everyone is entitled to 
his opinion. This article is ridiculous, 
however. It is not the first to be catagor- 
ized in a similar fashion by LVC students. 

Objectivity and broadmindedness are

two important qualities which seem to be 
lacking in these articles. We believe we 
are correct in assuming that the writer of 
the article under consideration was never 
a White Hat, is not a member of the "L" 
club, and was in no way connected with 
the SCA skit. It seems to us that this 
person is against most forms of social 
enjoyment employed by LVC organiza- 
tions. What would he suggest we do, 
have revival meetings on Friday nights 
and political rallies on Saturdays? 

Every campus needs its social functions, 
especially LVC. We cannot afford to lose 
what little we have. It is a combination 
of educational and social experiences that 
make us mature individuals. 

We believe this person is grasping at 
thin strings to find something to condemn. 
Surely there is no harm in satire as pre- 
sented by the SCA. It is the way in which 
this satire is met that determines its qual- 
ity. If the person takes it in a degrading 
manner, it is not the fault of those who 
wrote it. 

And the purpose for which chapel seats 
are sold cannot be considered unim- 
portant. We did not consider this to be 
sacrilegious when we bought them. No 
connection between the chapel and the 
"chapel seats" was made. The majority of 
freshmen knew why they were buying 
chapel seats. 

As far as White Hats are concerned 
this person is definitely wrong. Maybe 
he didn't feel closer to his classmates as a 
result of initiation, but many people do. 
It does help you to get acquainted with 
upperclassmen and lets them know who 
you are. We would deeply regret not be- 
ing able to have this program. We also 
feel that revisions are not necessary. It 
was revised too much this year. With the 
shortened program, White Hats did tend 
to be rougher on the freshmen than they 
would have been had the program been 
longer. 

All this leads to one question which 
we would like to ask P.F.P. Is there 
anything about LVC that you like? 
Whether you realize it or not, there are 
other people here interested in education. 
But we believe social events are important, 



too. Certainly, there are many things at 
LVC which need to be revised. We need 
the rapid changes which you are against. 
We do not deny the need for rationality, 
but we do not think the activities which 
you criticize are irrational. With more 
social opportunities on campus, perhaps 
there would be less vandalism and break- 
ing of rules. There is definite room for 
improvement here, but we believe you are 
looking in the wrong direction.

Local Boards To Give 
Selective Service Test 

Applications for the November 18 and 
19, 1966, administrations of the College 
Qualification Test are now available at 
Selective Service System local boards 
throughout the country. 

Eligible students who intend to take 
this test should apply at once to the 
nearest Selective Service local board for 
an application card and a Bulletin of 
Information for the test. 

Following instructions in the Bulletin, 
the student should fill out his application 
and mail it immediately in the envelope 
provided to Selective Service Examining 
Section. Educational Testing Service, P.O. 
Box 988, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 
Applications for the test must be post- 
marked no later than midnight, October 
21, 1966. 

According to Educational Testing Ser- 
vice, which prepares and administers the 
College Qualification Test for the Selec- 
tive Service System, it will be greatly to 
the student's advantage to file his appli- 
cation at once. By registering early, he 
psuSissB 8upq jo aotreqD jsaq am sptrejs 
to the test center he has chosen. Because 
of the possibility that he may be assigned 
to either of the testing dates, it is very 
important that he list a center and center 
number for each date on which he will 
be available. 



Where Do $ Go? 

The administration recently announced an increase of $150 for the 
coming academic year— $100 for tuition, $50 for board. Although reasons 
are given for this increase, they tell the student almost nothing about where 
this money will go. Planned improvements, increased financial aid, and 
operational costs of the Dining Hall are given as general areas of added 
expense. 

What are these planned improvements? Does increased financial 
aid mean that we are paying for our own scholarships or paying ourselves 
to work in the dining hall? 

Why shouldn't the students be told where their money is spent — not 
just the $150 increase but the entire college fee. We do not expect a 
penny by penny account but a general idea of what percent of our money 
is used for such things as dorm improvements, dorm maintenance, dining 
hall operational expenses, cost of food, academic expense, and athletics. 

We invite the administration to use La Vie to publish some of these 
little known facts. B.F.K.

Harriers Meet Defeat 
In Well-Run Contests 

The 1966 cross country team of Leba- 
non Valley College is steadily improving. 
Freshmen Agu Laane and Terry Nitha 
have come through in the last few meets 
to place high up on the roster for the 
valley harriers. Co-captain Dick Will- 
iams is running the steady first place at 
which these freshmen can aim. 

Sophomore lim Davis and co-captain 
Murphy have been taking over the sec- 
ond and third spots for the Flying Dutch- 
men the last three meets. Tom Micka 
has greatly improved over the summer 
months and the last few weeks to hold 
down the fourth place for the team. 

Senior J. Morgan Waring, sophomore 
Leslie Bush, juniors LeRoy Frey and 
Carl Sabold are running hard to take the 
much needed displacement spots. Other 
frosh Mike Burns and Rick Crowther 
are adding depth to the squad and are 
being counted on to push our returning 
veterans on to victory. 

Unfortunate events led to a close de- 
feat at Drexel's home course where both 
Drexel and PMC edged the Valley har- 
riers. The following Wednesday, October 
12, Delaware Valley and Rider College 
met Lebanon Valley on their home 
course. With the home fans wildly cheer- 
ing our boys, the LV squad devastated 
Delaware Valley College while an un- 
known Rider team downed both Dela- 
ware Valley and LVC. 

On October 15, the Elizabethtown Blue 
Jays flew to Annville for a dual meet 
with LVC. Even though our boys ran 
their best race of the year, it was to no 
avail. The Blue Jays triumphed over 
LVC in a terrific contest. 

Wednesday, the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege cross country team met a strong 
Gettysburg in an away meet. Home- 
coming will find the Harriers at home 
again facing their arch-rival, the Albright 
Lions. If the team is supported as it 
was last Wednesday with a large crowd 
of enthusiastic spectators, the team will 
surely have a good day! 

The schedule for the remainder of the 
year is as follows: 

Sat., Oct. 22 — Moravian (away) 

Sat., Oct. 29 — Muhlenberg (away) 

Sat., Nov. 5 — Albright (home) 

Wed., Nov. 9 — Ursinus (home) 

Sat., Nov. 12 — Dickinson (away) 

Fri., Nov. 18— MAC'S 



Lebanon Valley College 
Sponsors Math Exams 

Dr. Barnard Bissinger, Chairman of 
the Department of Mathematics, has an- 
nounced the date for the annual Actu- 
arial Examinations. They will be held 
Wednesday morning, November 9, on 
the Lebanon Valley College campus. 

There are several parts to the Exami- 
nations. Taking Part I will be Ronald 
Newmaster, a senior, and Benjamin 
Klugh, a sophomore. This test covers 
algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, 
and calculus. 

Part II involves probability and mathe- 
matical statistics. Juniors Stuart Schoenly 
and Robert Kaufmann will take this test. 

Kiyofumi Sakaguchi, a senior, will be 
taking Part in. This test covers finite 
differences and compound interest. 

Lebanon Valley is the only Actuarial 
Examination testing center between Phil- 
adelphia and Penn State University. For 
this reason several people from other 
schools and businesses will come to Ann- 
ville to take the test along with the five 
LVC students. 



Jiggerboard Considers 
Student Suggestions 

Jiggerboard has placed a suggestion 
box in the dining hall for "legitimate" 
suggestions, in order to consider more 
problems or needs of the students. The 
way for this idea to be successful is for 
the student body to use this box when- 
ever a complaint comes up. 

The issue of permissions will again be 
considered, as Jiggerboard has contacted 
other colleges for information. In the 
near future, a request will again be made 
to the faculty concerning this matter. 



LVC Hockey Team 
Wins Opening Game 




The Lebanon Valley girls' hockey team officially opened its 1966 
season October 4, with a 2-1 victory over Millersville State College. The 
last minute of play proved to be an important one as freshman JoAnn 
Yeagley scored the winning goal. The other tally on the LV side was by the 
team's captain, Bobbi Macaw. 

Then on Friday, October 7, the LV lassies travelled to Shippensburg 
and played to a 1-1 tie before Shippensburg wacked across a winning goal 
with one minute left to play. The lone goal for LV was scored by center 
Bobbi Macaw. 



The LVC home field was the site of 
another disappointment on Monday when 
Valley played host to E-town. During the 
first half the LV squad played E-town to a 
0-0 tie, but was just outhustled in the last 
half and lost the game by a score of : 3. 

The players on the squad this year are 
Maripat Smith, Julia Looker, Bobbi 
Macaw, Janet Else, Janet Gessner, Bar- 
bara Ankrum, Sue Cumming, Trish 
Mooney, Leslie Bair, Barbara Robertson, 
Mary Lou LaBella, Mary Jane Lentz,

LVC Students Receive 
Scholarship Assistance 

Six Lebanon Valley College students 
have been named Park Silk Scholars ac- 
cording to an announcement by Dr. Fred- 
eric K. Miller, college president. 

They are seniors Roberta Gable, a 
chemistry major; Ronald Newmaster, a 
pre-engineering major; and juniors Bruce 
Bean, a physics major; Carol Edgecomb, 
a biology major; Marjorie Miller, and 
Jean Slade, both music education majors. 

The Park Silk Scholar program, a 
grant from Mr. Samuel Ostrow, presi- 
dent of the Park Silk Company, is de- 
signed "to provide scholarship assistance 
for worthy students." 

The program will extend over a two- 
year period. In setting up the terms of 
the program, Mr. Ostrow indicated that 
the supporting funds are unrestricted, 
and that the selections of the Park Silk 
Scholars will be the responsibility of the 
College's committee on financial aid to 
students. He stated that the grant was 
made to Lebanon Valley College in rec- 
ognition of its outstanding educational 
services to the youth of the local commu- 
nity, the state and the nation. 

Lebanon Valley College Scholars are 
chosen for tuition grants during their 
freshman and sophomore years on the 
basis of a competitive examination ad- 
ministered prior to their admission to the 
college.

Freshman Girls Vie 
For LVC Day Title 

The Varsity "L" club has selected eight freshmen girls as candidates 
for Homecoming Queen. The Queen, chosen in all-campus voting, will be 
announced at the football game on Homecoming Day and will reign at

descending attitudes. So why forced in- 
tegration instead of properly planning for 
upgrading the schools and living con- 
ditions of these people? It is so hard to 
believe that nobody in Washington can 
plan a sensible programme directed at 
the causes rather than the symptoms, of 
this stupid question of race. In a way it 
seems as if high-ranking politicians are 
capitalizing on the whole question of race! 
These politicians argue though that the 
Civil Rights Bill is a "step in the right 
direction." Yes, "right direction" when 
properly framed and initiated. They seem 
to forget that such legislation is not aimed 
at prejudice. Moreover, it is necessary to 
realize that: (a) Americans hold their laws 
lightly, (b) (as I have mentioned earlier) 
laws attack symptoms, not causes and, 
(c) there is a difference between docu- 
mented law and law in action. On the 
other hand, those who argue that state- 
ways cannot change folkways seem to for- 
get that the folkways of the South were 
created by 'Jim Crow' laws. As a visitor 
to the United States, I find it ridiculous 
that Negroes have to 'march', before the 
U.S. government (the 'white' power struc- 
ture) becomes aware of the increased need 
for equal protection and benefits for them. 
What is the meaning of democracy then? 
Or is it that the idea of progress carries 
with it the necessity for some people to 
"sing for their supper"? At a time when 
tempers were rising to a height regarding 
the disgraceful situation that has been 
evoked by unnecessary riots and demon- 
strations, Vice President Humphrey, in all 
his splendor, was offering this little note 
to a huge mixed crowd in New Orleans 
last summer: "I might riot too, if I had 
to live under some of the conditions in 
American slums!" Well, if this designed to 
quell rioting tempers, then we might as 
well begin to find a new meaning for the 
expression, "responsible leadership." 
Combined powers: 

Is it not disappointing that in our age 
we can only boast of scientific, rather than 
human, advancement? If we can see the 
benefit of space exploration and achieve- 
ment as the pride of a nation — indeed of 
all progressive people — we should also be 
able to see human progress in collective 
rather than individual terms. So while we 
exalt research and derive enormous bene- 
fits therefrom, we ought not, with a spirit 
of pettiness, continue to pursue such 
goals that widen human barriers thereby 
making it impossible to "concentrate on 
our highest priority goals." In this sense, 
there should be a combination of "white" 
and "black" powers in a conscious willing- 
ness to pursue the Christian road to truth 
and love — the road that knows no color, 
no barrier, no shame. 

I realize that many of my readers, per- 
haps through shame or disgust, would pre- 
fer not to even think of the matter. But 
the truth is, we cannot afford to ignore an 
evil which retards the combined progress 
of all humanity. To these people I say, 
that which we wish to be we are; for such 
is the fate of our will joined to the 
Supreme, that that which we wish to be 
seriously and with a true intent, that we 
become. Moreover, let us not forget that 
life has a tomorrow which is only ex- 
plained in terms of adding our efforts of 
today to that of yesterday.

Is Liberal Education 
Lost In Facts? 

by Bobbie Gable 

To the faculty and students: 

We invite your comments on the following problem: 
The amount of work expected from students seems to be increasing 
without limit. The college student taking any general course is asked to 
spend as much time on the course as if he were a major in that field. 
Carrying the equivalent of five majors a student becomes so bogged down 
in work that he loses sight of the goal of his liberal education — to produce 
a citizen armed not only with facts and information, but with the intellec- 
tual power to relate his knowledge to the world around him as well as to 
assimilate new information. 

Wrapped up in learning the facts, the student can spend four years 
completely oblivious to the world outside. He does not have time to digest 
all this information and ponder over where it fits in our world or how our 
world fits these facts or patterns. And when one does not apply or relate 
knowledge it is quickly forgotten. 

No amount of extra reading, no term 
paper, no movie can substitute for the 
understanding gained by thinking, by 
putting the pieces together to make a 
picture. 

Time is most often the factor preventing 
a student from digging a little deeper into 
something which interests him or looking 
back to see how the new relates to the 
old. He cannot stop to delve into one sub- 
ject without sacrificing another course's 



Department Announces 
Mathematics Contest 

The twenty-seventh annual William 
Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competi- 
tion will be held on Saturday, November 
19, 1966. 

This contest is open to any Lebanon 
Valley College student who has had at 
least two years of college mathematics. 
Interested students may register with Mr. 
Henning of the Math Department before 
October 24. If there are more than three 
students who register, three will be cho- 
sen as the team members for the college 
and the others will be alternates. 

The examination consists of two per- 
iods, each three hours in length. Grading 
will be done by a group of qualified 
graders early in December, and the re- 
sults should be in the hands of Dr. Bis- 
singer within two months. 

Monetary prizes will be awarded to 
the Math department of the institutions 
with the five top teams and to the top 
ten individuals in the ranking, and to the 
members of the five top teams. Medals 
will also be presented to the winners. A 
scholarship to Harvard or Radcliffe Col- 
lege will be presented to one of the five 
highest contestants. 

Recognition of the top teams and the 
top individuals will be given in the 
American Mathematical Monthly.

Knights Of Valley 
Break With IFSC 

The following letter was presented by 
the Knights of the Valley to the Inter- 
Fraternity and Sorority Council at their 
meeting on Sunday, October 16: 

To the Inter-Fraternity and Sorority 
Council: 

It is the opinion of our fraternity that 
the Inter-Fraternity and Sorority Council 
has no reason or basis for existence. The 
original purpose of the organization was 
"to further mutual understanding among 
the organizations comprising it and to 
provide for joint activities among them." 
In the few years of its existence, this 
purpose has never been realized. It has 
been completely misconstrued to the 
point where the activities of the council 
have been centered around controlling 
pledge activities of its member organiza- 
tions. We fail to see the necessity in 
regulating the pledging programs of the 
social fraternities. Since each fraternity 
is different in its purpose for existence 
and policy of intracampus relationship, 
they have , of course, different approach- 
es to pledging. Therefore we feel that it 
is the opinion of each individual frater- 
nity as to how they wish to conduct 
their pledge proceedings. 

As to the original purpose of the 
Council, we fail to see any need for 
an organization "to provide for joint 
activities" among the social fraternities 
and sororities on his campus. In past 
years, cooperation for this purpose has 
never come about as a result of any 
action taken by the Council. Individual 
initiative on the part of the fraternities 
is quite sufficient to create cooperation 
for joint activities. 

The possibility that the Council could 
act as a mediating body between social 
organizations and the college lacks defi- 
nite value. Each member organization of 
the Council has representatives on the 
Faculty Student Council, which has in its 
power this mediating ability. Thus, it is 
illogical for social organizations to dupli- 
cate this representation on the I.F.S.C. 

The Constitution governing the Coun- 
cil failed to outline any distinctive rea- 
sons for existence or courses of action. 
It has no authority upon which to base 
its existence or to use to support any 
action. 

With these considerations as our basis, 
we can no longer justify our membership 
in this organization. Present circum- 
stances necessitate our immediate with- 
drawal from the Inter-Fraternity and So- 
rority Council.

Rolanda Hofmann — Homecoming Queen 

Valley Selects 
Miss Hofmann 
As 1966 Queen 



Miss Rolanda Hofmann has been 
chosen as the 1966 Homecoming Queen. 
She is a liberal arts major thinking ser- 
iously of majoring in French at LV. 

Miss Hofmann comes from Waynes- 
boro, Pennsylvania where she was chosen 
as Junior Miss of Franklin county. Her 




Janice Sinister, Attendant to the Queen 

high school activities included Honor 
Society, band, choir, newspaper, and 
yearbook. At LV she participates in in- 
tramurals and plans to join the French 
club. 

This summer Miss Hofmann worked 
in Waynesboro as an aid for Head Start, 
a project designed to help culturally de- 
prived children prepare to begin school. 

Her hobbies include swimming and 
^ater skiing and she is a football and 
basketball fan. 

When told that she was a finalist, she 
c ould hardly believe it. She said she never 
e *pected to be one of the eight — and to 
be one of the three was far more than 
she ever expected. 

The girls on second floor of Mary 
Green had more confidence than she did. 
They were thrilled with her being a final 1 
lst and insisted that she would be queen. 

Miss Janice Shuster, a liberal arts 



major from St. Johnsville, New York, 
said she was stunned when told she was 
a finalist. 

Described by her dormmates as cheer- 
ful and enthusiastic she is usually busy 
with many activities. In high school she 
was in the Honor Society, was accom- 
panist for the chorus, playing both piano 
and organ. . She was also in student 
council and on the yearbook staff. At 
LV she was a member of the hockey 
team, plans to try out for basketball, and 
plays intramurals. 

Her hobbies include skiing, horseback 
riding, and swimming. 

Miss Dale Carpenter, a med. tech. stu- 
dent from Lanham, Maryland, wanted to 
come to college in Pennsylvania because 
she had been camping many times and 
considered Pennsylvania to be such a 
beautiful place. 

While in high school Miss Carpenter 
was a member of the Honor Society and 
a participant in many sports including 
bowling and softball. She was a member 
of the school softball team, county

Music Fraternities 
To Enact Musical 
On Game Of Life 

Iota Kappa chapter of Phi Mu Alpha 
Sinfonia and Delta Alpha chapter of Sig- 
ma Alpha Iota announce their production 
of the musical "The Roar of the Grease- 
paint — The Smell of the Crowd." The 
musical, written by Anthony Newley and 
Leslie Bricusse, was originally produced 
on Broadway in the spring of 1965. 
"Greasepaint" was unusual in that it had 
recouped 80% of its investment while 
touring prior to its Broadway run. The 
show appealed to audiences with its hu- 
mor, message, and score. Musical num- 
bers include such popular songs as "On a 
Wonderful Day," "Look at that Face," 
and the hit song "Who Can I Turn To?" 

The story is a modern parable of life; 
it states the problem of the "haves" versus 
the "have nots." In comedy, drama, and 
music "Greasepaint" follows the underdog 
Cocky in his struggle to defeat his oppo- 
nent Sir in the game of life. 

The local production has been in re- 
hearsal since September. Larry Bachtell 
is directing the show, while Jamie Mur- 
phy is doing the choreography. Bill Mil- 
ler is serving as musical director and will 
conduct the twenty-piece orchestra. Per- 
formances will be given on Friday and 
Saturday, December 9 and 10, at 8:30 
p.m. in Engle Hall. All seats will be re- 
served; tickets will be on sale in mid- 
November. 



World Watcher 

England: Sir Walter Ashworth of the 
Royal Infirmary in Oldham, Lancaster, 
England, recently gave up his post as 
resident Medical Officer to become a 
butcher in one of his father's shops. 
He claims he will make more money as a 
butcher to support himself and his new 
wife (the former Ann Cooper) whom he 
married last October 28th. 

United States: Mysterious creatures in 
Washington, D. C, have swooped down 
on Angie Dickinson and asked her to 
postpone her writing of a book titled 
Washington's Social Whirl for some 
time. Apparently, the Capitol has be- 
come more sensitive than Hollywood 
about its 'public' relations. 

Nigeria: America's pet baby, "the sym- 
bol of democracy in black Africa" — Ni- 
geria has of late been the 'scene of terror' 
in West Africa. It is believed that the 
'democratic effect' of Colonialism's "di- 
vide and rule" and "superior/inferior pol- 
icies have heightened Nigeria's 'tribal 
powers' warfare. 

United Nations, N. Y: At the present 
21st session of the General Assembly, the 
Sierra Leone Delegation has tabled an 
appeal — in the Second Committee (Eco- 
nomic and Financial) asking the Commit- 
tee to stress the need for helping the eco- 
nomic development of new nations by 
rich nations. One of the reasons for this 
appeal is the increase in loan interest rate 
to 6% by the World Bank! 

Moscow: Radio Moscow has broadcast 
to Poland that the events now taking 
place in China command general atten- 
tion. Progressive public opinion express- 
es anxiety that after the 11th plenum 
of the Chinese Communist Party Central 
Committee an anti-Soviet campaign has 
gathered momentum in that country. 

Moscow seriously believes that there is 
no doubt that the leadership of the Chi- 
nese Peoples' Republic, hiding behind 
mendacious fabrications about a USSR 
plot with U.S. imperialism and about the 
alleged restoration of capitalism in the 
USSR, is again provoking a considerable 
worsening of relations between the USSR 
and the Chinese Peoples' Republic.

Drama Group Gives 
Production Tonight 

The members of the Wig and Buckle Society are presenting the second 
performance of their fall play tonight at 8:30 in Engle Hall. The play is a 
drama by Joseph Kramm, The Shrike. 

The Shrike reveals the conflicts faced by a man who has failed in his 
attempted suicide. Jim Downs, portrayed by Gere Reist, battles to main- 
tain his ideals in the "observation ward" of a city hospital. 
Unable to convince the 



to convince the examining 
doctors, played by Bonnie Baker, Ron 
Poorman, Joel Reidel, and Tom Shatto, 
that he has returned to a stable mental 
condition, Downs is faced with a choice 
between being sent to the State Hospital 
or being released in the custody of the 
wife he no longer loves. Pixie Hunsicker 
portrays the wife.

Lenny Sets Forth 
On Trip To Africa 

The Biology Department has announ- 
ced that Lenny the Leopard has gone on 
another trip. 

Lenny, the stuffed African leopard who 
makes his home in the display case of the 
biology department, has been taking trips 
for the past thirty five years. His "vaca- 
tions" vary in destination and in duration. 
When Lenny left last week, he left a note 
reading: 

"I had to go. I think I'll take a trip 
to Africa — I'm homesick! See you in a 
couple of weeks." — Lenny 

Mr. Bollinger of the biology depart- 
ment said the department is not overly 
concerned, as long as Lenny is kept safe. 
He said that the department is disappoint- 
ed if the leopard does not disappear some- 
times. Mr. Bollinger added that Lenny is 
welcome to return during the day and 
no one will ask him where he has been. 

It is hoped Lenny will have a good trip 
wherever he is and will return soon. 



Green Blotter Accepts

HOMECOMING 

The Keyboard 

by Ade Hedd 

The ancients, being much more interested in the broad question of 
human conduct than in race, had a favourite problem of discussion which 
ran something like this: If a man who had never seen another human being 
were to meet with one suddenly in the woods would he fight him or make 
friends with him? The idea was to determine whether human beings were 
inherently friendly to one another, and whether war was natural to man- 
kind. The old philosophers, though, were never able to solve that 
question. 

However, in this our day when 'race' and 'war' occupy the centre of 
the world stage, could a similar question be answered, namely: Were two 
men of different races, say a 'white' and a 'black'; to meet suddenly for the 
first time and alone would they fight or make friends? There is probably 
no record of such a meeting in times past. The nearest I can recall reading 
about quite a few years ago was when Ptolemy, son of Lagus (323-285 
B.C.) brought a piebald Negro from Egypt and placed him on exhibition 
in Greece! The greater part of the audience at seeing a human being with 
a mixture of 'white' and 'black', burst into violent laughter, while the rest, 
if I must borrow a fitting expression from Lucian, "were horror-struck as 
if they beheld a prodigy of mischievous portent." 

For us of the present day, the earliest history of all people and na- 
tions is "lost in the fog." Our prehistoric ancestors never thought of pre- 
serving records for our benefit and even if they did, fire, flood, earthquake 
and war might have destroyed them. Although anthropologists and arche- 
ologists have traced the earliest human existence back to East-Central 
Africa (which means that the earliest humans, according to studies, were 
Negroid), I still think such relics as have been found are accidental leaving 
possibilities of traces elsewhere. But, most of all, it is true of the origin of 
Man and the development of the many so-called races from a single race. 

Now, the question is: Was the original man white or black? Frankly, 
we do not know and perhaps will never know. So, how is it that one race 
became superior and the other inferior? 
Colour 

The general idea of 'white' and 'black' 
races has never ceased to amuse me. Or, 
perhaps, I am not 'educated' enough to 
conceive it (or others aren't) . Are people 
really 'white' and/or 'black'? I daresay, 
with all the prospect of higher and ad- 
vanced education (unless I am colour- 
blind) we have allowed ourselves to reduce 
to the vortex of unqualified stupidity. 
Simply, let's take the piano — its key- 
board. The keys are of two colours, 
and these are the colours that the 'whites' 
who first had the privilege of advanced 
education taught the world to recognize 
as 'white' and 'black.' Later, when they 
became drunk with material prosperity 
and elected themselves to superior human 
status, they called themselves 'white' Pur- 
itans — chosen by God to carry civiliza- 
tion and Christianity to the black and 
brown races of men. 

But, leaving this so-called 'civilizing 
influence' aside, is the 'white' man really 
white and the 'black' man really black? 
I am sure every educated person today 
will fail to recognize themselves as either 
Svhite' or 'black.' But, then what colour 
are we? In my observations, I have 
recognized colours ranging from pink, tan, 
ebony, and brown — no white, and no 
black! Apparently, the person who ever 
thought of naming people 'white' and 
'black' was a fool. And the question of 
which is the superior or inferior human 
being we had better leave entirely alone 
if we are thoughtful and have anything 
like pride in ourselves. 

So we see that every human being on 
earth is "coloured"! Then, why the big 
fuss? Studies in science and anthropology 
have revealed that the American Negro, 
for example, is the product of a mixture 
of Europeans and Africans, and approx- 
imately one-third of the genes of this 
group are of European origin. On the 
other hand, no less than about eighty- 
five percent of the genes of so-called 
'whites' are of Negroid origin. Neverthe- 
less, truth is at its best when tossed among 
error, ridicule and ignorance; it always 
emerges stronger. Out of the clashings of 
sense and nonsense uttered by divines 
and scholars emerged truth so strong 
that the man who insists on denying it 
today is regarded as a freak. This is that 
MAN has a common ancestor, that the 
points of physical difference between so 
called races are almost as nothing when 
compared with their points of resem 
blance. 

Both science and the Bible agree on a 
common origin for mankind. They also 
agree, by inference, that man originated 



in the tropics (where food and shelter 
were most easily obtainable). The sup- 
posed Garden of Eden has been fixed 
either in India or Persia. In southern 
India tourists are shown "the graves of 
Cain and Abel," and in Ceylon "the foot 
prints of Adam" on Adam's Peak. The 
Jews, in writing their account of man's 
origin, copied it from the ancient East 
Indian legend of Hadama and Hava 
(Adam and Eve). Thus when Christians 
chose Adam as their ancestor, they really 
chose a dark-skinned progenitor for the 
human race, even though the early Chris- 
tians of Europe knowing no better re-

To the Editor of La Vie: 

The officers of the Pennsylvania His- 
torical Association have asked me to con- 
vey to the students, faculty, and adminis- 
tration of the college their deep apprecia- 
tion of the extraordinary manner in which 
the above persons performed in the han- 
dling of local arrangements at the time of 
the annual meeting of the association in 
Lebanon and on the campus, October 
21-22. 

To these words of appreciation I wish 
to add my own personal expression of 
gratitude for the exemplary service of our 
students and staff on this occasion. I had 
confidence prior to the meeting that we 
would do a very good job, but the high 
level of performance by all of those who 
assisted in the meeting far exceeded my 
expectations. 

I should summarize here some of the 
opinions expressed by members of the as- 
sociation who have attended many of its 
meetings over the years. One of these 
persons declared that this was the best 
managed meeting in its long history. An- 
other stated that the hospitality and cour- 
tesy shown all of our guests has never 
been matched. A third noted that he had 
only one complaint: the performance of 
our students and staff was of such high 
quality that no local arrangements group 
will ever be able to equal it! I'll accept 
that type of complaint any day! 

Finally, the officers and executive 
committee of the Lebanon County His- 
torical Society requested that their ex- 
pression of appreciation also be relayed 
to all the college personnel concerned.

Associate professor of history 



To the Editor of La Vie: 

There are those who agree wholeheart- 
edly with Mr. Pickard's editorial, 
"Change." I believe we should at least 
be honest enough to call the White Hats 
program "hazing" and not "orientation" 
or some other euphemism. We ought to 
admit either that we ignore the regulation 
on page 125 of the college catalog or that 
our definition of personal rights is sadly 
lacking. No matter what its original ob- 
jectives may have been, the program, as 
it stands, is a deliberate insult to the per 
sonal dignity of the freshmen for the en 
joyment of upperclassmen (not only White 
Hats). 

Also, regardless of the uses to which 
the money may be put, the fact remains 
that selling chapel seats is in poor taste 
Even if class unity and college loyalty 
are instilled by the program, I question 
whether such qualities are at all worth 
developing if the methods now used are 
necessary. 

John Heffner 



To the Editor of La Vie: 

I would like to extend my thanks to 
the following people for their coopera- 
tion during the White Hat program: the 
faculty and administration, especially

LEBANON VALLEY 
COLLEGE 




lenne 



ANNVTLLE, 
PENNSYLVANIA 



Established 1925 



Lately, many people have been worrying about Lebanon Valley's 
image as a "suitcase college." Many naturally assumed that their fellows 
went home weekends to have fun. Armed with this idea, they scheduled 
more activities for the weekends here. Yet, the exodus continued. Ac- 
tually . . . 

The students who leave campus on weekends are going home to work. 
They have had such a full week of entertainment by Friday, that they need 
the weekend to catch up on all the assignments they have not done. 

The source of all this entertainment is the main floor of the college 
library where there is an incredible three-act performance nightly from 
7:00-9:30, Monday through Friday. 

The first group is led by a regular to the main floor known as "the 
belcher." This budding mental midget and his cronies get together — pre- 
ferably in the middle of the room for better acoustics. Then "the belcher" 
proceeds to belch as loudly as he can. This action immediately reduces his 
admiring audience to thundering guffaws as it attempts to remain un- 
noticed (thus giving the leader the credit) by hiding behind quaking news- 
papers. 

Another part of the nightly act is the "co-ed review." These hapless 
hams gaily thump from one table to another to get as much attention as 
they can in the alloted two and one-half hours. Their methods of getting 
attention are, as one would reasonably expect, different from those of "the 
belcher." 

The girls trip lightly by people's desks — like Flamenco dancers — 
hoping some of their male friends will notice them. Once noticed, the 
leader of the group will perch herself on the same chair with her favorite, 
while the other girls distribute themselves conspicuously over the furniture. 

Of course they never stay long in one place (the grass is always 
greener . . .). Consequently, there is a constant conversation across the 
library. The jilted males try to coax the girls to return, while those pres- 
ently in command of the situation express their pity for their fellows now 
left alone. 

Last and least in this three-act performance on the evening's docket 
of entertainment are "the gaping primates" (credit to H. L. Mencken). 
These intellectual incompetents can always manage to divert one's atten- 
tion from the other parts of the show to their enlightened comments about 
their likes and dislikes regarding the school and life in general. Although 
they have nothing to say, they are so loud that one cannot help but hear 
their "booring" comments. 

For better or worse, the library is really only meant for studying 
and/or getting reference information. The nightly performances put on by 
these thoughtless people are less than conducive to studying. 

Perhaps it would be worthwhile for us all to do some serious research 
in the field of courtesy. No one should have to be asked to be quiet in a 
library. — P.P.

The White Hats, I feel, were the best 
group I have seen in four years. They 
never had to be reprimanded or disci- 
plined once during the entire program, 
and they assumed and carried out their 
responsibilities without having to be re- 
minded. 

My congratulations and thanks also go 
to the freshman class. In my opinion, 
they were about the best and most coop- 
erative group during the three years that 
I have been on the White Hats, and I 
certainly enjoyed working with them. 

Finally, a very special note of appreci- 
ation to Bobbie Macaw. No one knows 
how hard she has worked for the White 
Hats. The program's success is due more 
to her hard work and organization than 
to any other person. 

Thank you all! 

L. D'Augostine 



To the Editor of La Vie: 

I feel that in my three-plus years at 
LVC I have had quite a few facts thrown 
at me in the name of a liberal education. 
I would rather have a liberal education of 
the kind I have received than none at all. 
If I had not had the opportunity to take 
courses in different fields, I probably 
would not have come to college. I just 
don't think my liberal education has been 
what it could be. In some cases, facts have 
been coordinated into an overall picture 
of their importance — for instance, in IS 15 
economic factors were related to the over- 
all development of a country. However, 
for the most part, my general courses have 
been an attempt to give a quick but 
thorough background in the subject with 
little emphasis on the fact that these gen- 
eral courses can relate to the whole back- 
ground of a liberal education. An example 
is the comparative literature course. The 
title implies comparison — yet very little 
comparison is asked of the student or 
done by the professor. Instead one is 



asked to read many works in the history 
of literature and on tests to answer ques- 
tions about minute details of the works. 

To some extent the content of courses 
could be generalized or related to an 
overall background in classroom discus- 
sion, but just how much of this occurs 
in classes? The heart of my liberal 
education is the general courses of other 
major subjects, but most of these have 
such large classes that discussion is 
limited. In the only general course I have 
now, I feel that I would be halting class 
progress if I attempted a slight detour 
on something I think might relate to the 
subject. I don't feel that this is entirely 
the fault of the professor, for the class 
size is such that a discussion would in- 
deed involve only a small part of the class, 
and the professor is trying to educate 
the majority of the class. 

My small classes have all been in- 
teresting because discussion has been en- 
couraged, and though the discussions may 
not always relate to the outside world, 
they have been informative. You can't 
expect to have a continuous relation pro- 
cess, but can't we expect with a liberal 
education to have some idea of how to 
use what we have learned to continue to 
learn when formal education stops?

We wish to thank the supporters of 
the series of Film Classics for the pa- 
tience and understanding that they have 
shown during our unbelievably bad run 
of luck with campus projection facilities. 
Until the college's new equipment arrives, 
projectors will be rented from profes- 
sional sources, beginning with Casablan- 
ca on November 11th. The cancelled 
film, Suddenly Last Summer, will be

by students in the Senior Seminar in Re- 
ligion who have been to lectures presented 
by advocates and critics of the Death of 
God movement at Dickinson College. 

Man's difficulty in expressing himself 
about God is inherent in language itself 
— for language may only touch the ef- 
fable, let alone the ineffable. But man is 
driven to speak as he strives to know 
that which has laid claim upon his being. 
The Church is catholic and must speak 
to many. Doctrine is therefore form- 
ulated and consequently establishes tra- 
ditional language. The "death of God" 
theologians find such language obsolete 
and static and are striving for a complete- 
ly new mode of theological understanding 
in the dynamic divine-human encounter. 

Two noted proponents of this radical 
theology are Thomas J. J. Altizer of 
Emory University and William Hamilton 
of Colgate-Rochester Seminary. Altizer's 
approach, as exemplified in The Gospel 
of Christian Atheism, is mystical, while 
Hamilton speaks from the perspective of 
ethics. Dr. Paul M. van Buren of Temple 
University, who through popular journal- 
ism has been associated with these three 
theologians, has asserted that his position 
is as critic rather than advocate of the 
movement. Van Buren, a specialist in 
linguistics, is unable to overlook the un- 
disciplined terminology which abounds in 
radical theology, and prefers not to be 
associated with it. He suggests that 
modern theology adopt a new "speech- 
lessness" until it is able to deal with the 
extraordinary within the ordinary. 

Is this "death of God" theology sin- 
cerely espoused or is it merely sensa- 
tionalism? Is it formulated empirically or 
is it another "exercise of metaphysics"? 
Is this unique development divorced from 
prior religious philosophy or does it have 
roots? 

This contemporary movement in radical 
theology does not lack historical heritage. 
Not only have man's concepts of God 
been neglected, but the reality of an ulti- 
mate being has also been heretofore de- 
nied by some religious philosophers. To- 
wards the close of the last century, 
Frederich Nietzsche declared the "death 
of God." Reflecting the cosmic horror 
in the murder of God by the act of man, 
Nietzsche came finally to will the death 
of God as a necessity for man's liberation 
in history. Nietzsche desired to destroy 
that God who is the transcendent enemy 
of the fullness and the passion of man's 
life in the world; the disappearance of an 
absolute transcendent being negates the 
meaning of reality for modern man be- 
yond himself. 

The evolution of the "death of God" 
concept continued through the twentieth 
century. The massive change in human 
society, characterized by technological 



advance in industry, science, and the en- 
suing emphasis upon positivism and ra- 
tionalism has extended the attack upon 
orthodox theology. The need for a radical 
restatement of ultimate values became 
urgent. 

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the young Ger- 
man theologian who was martyred by 
the Nazi Germans, responded courage- 
ously to the collapse of traditional re- 
ligion. As a precursor to the contempor- 
ary radical theologians, Bonhoeffer 
searched for a "non-religious interpreta- 
tion of biblical concepts" — the necessity 
to speak of God in a secular fashion. 

Although not a "death of God" theol- 
ogian, Harvey Cox, author of The Secular 
City, echoed again the need for a re- 
statement of religious values. Character- 
izing the contemporary society as ur- 
banized and secularized, Cox indicates 
that the way men grasp and understand 
their lives together has undercut and by- 
passed religion so that society by and 
large has "no religion at all." 

Radical theology is a particular re- 
sponse to a contemporary need. The 
"death of God" theologians seek not only 
relevance and contemporanity for their 
own sake, but are striving towards a 
whole new way of theological understand- 
ing. In an attempt to define this new 
theology, we will examine the thought 
of Thomas J. J. Altizer, the most out- 
spoken of the radical theologians. 

Dr. Altizer states that with the passage 
of time all the meaning which we bring 
to the word "God" has been progress- 
ively divorced from reality, for it has 
evolved to a form which is totally alien 
and separated from the real world in 
which we actually live. He sees God as 
not only far beyond the world but ac- 
tually turned against man, crushing and 
oppressing him. For Altizer the God 
that the Bible and the church has taught 
has been the deepest source of repression 
and deception in man. And in his mys- 
tical view this is the God who is dead. 
This then is certainly anatheism, but what 
is Christian about it? 

Altizer goes further in seeing the death 
of God as a beginning, not an ending. 
With the death of this transcendent God 
standing over and against man comes a 
new freedom from the repressive forces 
which have kept us in subjugation. With 
this freedom is a new life and a new joy 
which he feels are not present through 
the Christian God. By his negation of 
God he has affirmed the reality of new 
life in Christ. He feels that his new 
atheism parallels the gospel of the 
ancient church before it developed into 
a twisted form. With the threat from 
beyond removed we are now free to give 
ourselves totally to life, time, reality, the 
here and now. And this to which we 
make our commitment is Christ, who in 



Mr. Altizer's mystical theology is totally 
in the world now. He is most confusing 
when he tries to win our allegiance to 
this Christ who is not the historical lesus, 
not in any sense God. Nor is he the 
Christ of the Bible or the church but a 
wholly new form making real what the 
Christian tradition tells us that Christ will 
be. 

According to Altizer, Christ appears 
apart from any divine form and is now 
fully actual and real to us in so far as we 
ourselves know and affirm that God is 
dead. How do we know this new Christ? 
By affirming the death of God we feel 
the great, overpowering joy of the re- 
moval from the transcendent to the em- 
anent. Energy which we once gave to 
that which was beyond and controlling 
us is given to the reality of the here and 
now. 

Dr. Altizer's view of Christ is perhaps 
the weakest part of his theology, but it 
seems quite easy to find several other 
points which lead to confusion. 

Most theologians of our time would 
admit that in our language about God we 
have been drawing away from reality. 
When the church speaks about God in the 
traditional biblical way it often does not 
relate to contemporary society, and it has 
long been known that a change is neces 
sary. Dr. Altizer's basic confusion is that 
he would have us equate language about 
God with the reality of God himself. 
Because our concept of God has become 
inadequate for our time, he would have 
us believe that God has become inadequ- 
ate. A change is necessary, but it should 
be remembered that simply because we 
will the death of God this does not make 
it so. Dr. Altizer seems only to be using 
the name Christ to avoid using the word 
"God" for that which to him seems to be 
only another form of diety. He has 
created him without fully explaining to 
us his origin! 

Although it is difficult to agree with 
the Death of God theologians, it is easy 
to respect them. They have sensed the 
mood of our day so clearly seen through 
its literature, and feel deeply the need 
for change in the way we talk about God. 
Altizer, however, seems only to have 
confused the problem with his new mys 
tical approach. 

What is apparently needed is a new 
way of talking about God. The concept 
of the creator-God of traditional language 
who stands back away from the world and 
must be approached at certain times and 
in certain ways should be done away 
with. What is needed is a new concept of 
God, who like the Christ of Dr. Altizer, is 
immediate and real in the here and now 
A god easily visible in the totality of 
human life and in man's everyday re- 
lationships.

The 1941 football team in one of its quieter moments 

Homecoming Honors 
Returning Gridders 

Football has been a prominent part of Lebanon Valley College for 
many, many years. It is a game which appeals to most everyone, old and 
young alike. In conjunction with Homecoming Weekend, a capsule view 
of the 1916, and 1941 teams will be presented. 

Fifty years ago in 1916, Lebanon Valley College ventured forth with 
a sixteen man squad to play teams never before met by an LVC team. In 
view of the opponents that season, the victories which were won stand 
out in the history of LVC football. The record for the 1916 season was 5 
won, 4 lost, and 1 tied with Lebanon Valley scoring 153 points to the 
oppositions total of 91 points. 



The schedule that year was as follows:

The 1916 team included seven seniors, 
five juniors, two sophomores, and two 
freshmen. The very able captain of this 
squad was a senior, C. LeRoy Mackert, 
who played tackle. He was called the 
"king of the gridiron" and was considered 
the best "toe man" in the smaller collegiate 
circle at this time. 

The captain elect of the team was senior 
end Frank Morrison. "Hank" was from 
Steelton, and was very popular among his 
teammates. Senior Charles Loomis who 
played tackle and guard was an efficient 
and aggressive linesman. 

The quarterback of the squad was 
senior Russell Rupp, "the Kid." He was 
a sensational general who called the plays 
well. One of the smaller guys on the 
team was George A. Dehuff, a senior 
guard nicknamed "Cotton." 

Another senior, Killiam "Kill" Swarthy, 
played end. He was a very able pass- 
catcher and had only one defect, his lack 
of hair. The last senior on the team was 
Marlin Wenrich who played center and 
guard. "Gummy" invariably out-played 
his opponents. 

A brilliant open field runner that year 
was junior William Keating who played 
halfback. Another junior, Ross "Carty" 
Swartz, a fullback was injured early in 
the season and was not able to play 
again until late in the season. Daniel 
Walter, "Danny," was a fullback repre- 
senting the junior class. He had speed as 
well as hard hitting qualities, and was 
considered the hardest worker on the 
team. Junior tackle Robert M. Alticks, 
"Red," was a tough and stalwart lines- 
man. The fifth junior on the team was 
another halfback, Gideon Jaeger, who 
contributed heavily to several of the LV 
victories. 

An important sophomore member of 
the squad was Thomas 'Tim" Adams, an 
end whose ability to catch passes and 
smash interference was greatly valued. 
The other sophomore was guard Russel 
Buckwalter, "Buck," injured in the mid- 
dle of the season. 

The two newest members on the roster 
were freshman Floyd Goff, a halfback, 
and freshman William Winneshiek, cen- 
ter and guard. Floyd, "Pig," was a 
Missourian who could throw a forward 
pass while "Bill" was an agressive 
Carlisle graduate. 

Coach Guyer was the head of this hard- 
working squad and he was assisted by 



"Chief" Wheelock, former star of the 
Carlisle Indians. The manager was Paul 
S. Wagner. 

Looking briefly at the games them- 
selves it is seen how hard LV really 
fought. Army scored their three points in 
the final quarter of the game and in the 
Villanova game which was the first win, 
the ground gaining was sensational. LV 
was out of its depth when it played 
Dartmouth, considered to be one of the 
best teams in the East. In the Lehigh 
game, field goals by both teams were the 
only score, but the LV team suffered de- 
feat at the hands of Lafayette partly due 
to injuries. 

The St. Joseph game was listless and a 
complete runaway for LVC. The Muh- 
lenberg game was won on a third quarter, 
45 yard, touchdown run. The victory over 
the Carlisle Indians was the first in his- 
tory whereas beating Susquehanna ex- 
tended the record to four consecutive 
wins over that school. The Thanksgiving 
Day game with Bucknell was lost partly 
because of the condition of the field. 

Turning the clock up twenty-five years, 
we now come to 1941. The most memor- 
able event of this season was the 27-13 
triumph over Lebanon Valley's arch- 
rival Albright, the first time in seven 
years. The season was considered a suc- 
cessful one with a record of four wins, 
three dosses, and one tie. The LVC grid- 
iron edition scored a total of 107 points 
throughout the season while 59 points 
were racked up against them.

The twenty-five man squad of 1941 
was made up of six seniors, three juniors, 
four sophomores, and twelve freshmen. 
The team captain that year was Ralph S. 
Shay, an aggressive guard who is now 
chairman of the history department at 
Lebanon Valley. A "three-letter man" 
who played back was senior George W. 
Smith, better known as "Smitty." 

A senior end Donald S. Staley, "Don," 
was an all-around athlete who never let 
the team down. The hardest worker on 
the team that year was center John F. 
Swope. "Kid" was an All-American who 
came from Myerstown. Two other senior 
ends were Stephen J Kubisen, and Joseph 
E. Carr. "Steve" was a scrappy ball play- 
er, and "Joe" was a versatile boy, good 
for team spirit. 

Although there were only three juniors 
on the team, they represented their class 
well. John W. Eminhizer, Jr. was a guard 
of no mean ability. We was known as 
"Punchy" to both his friends and foes. 
Another all-around athlete was Harry N. 
Matala. "Blind Man" was a real battling 
back on the gridiron. 

The third junior on the team was tackle 
Henry W. Schmalzer. A battler in the 
sophomore ranks was John W. Hall, 
"Johnny." Nicholas "Nick" W. Dorazio 
was a back on the squad who showed 
promise of greatness. A real sportsman 
on the team was sophomore Charles E. 
Newbaker, Jr. who was positioned as a 
back. The fourth sophomore was Bene- 
dict A. Wasilekski. "Big, battling Bum" 
was considered the mainstay of the for- 
ward line throughout the season. 

Robert F. Beck was a popular de- 
termined athlete. Known as "Red" he was 
a steady freshman back. Another back, 
Fred S. Beshore was nicknamed "Tank" 
or "Freddie." He was a rugged runner 
and could pass for long yardage. 

There were five other freshmen backs 
in 1941: Joseph M. Fiorello, a big man 
on campus. Miles D. Harriger who be- 
came a member of "Who's Who in Amer- 
ican Colleges," Carl E. Hultin, Matthew 
"Matt" J. Moley, an elusive safety man, 
and Anthony R. Ventresca nicknamed 
"Van," a good man in offense and de- 
fense. 

One of the two freshmen tackles was 
Dave J. Lantz, a rock against the op- 
position. Paul Mateyak was a savage 
tackier who became one of the leaders of 
the team. William J. Racine, end, and F. 
Lewis "Louie" Reinhold, Jr., a guard 
were the remaining members of the squad. 

The 1947 roster was coached by Jer- 
ome W. Frock, assisted by Marino 
Sntrieri. Mr. Frock was varsity football 
coach for nine years at LVC and also 
coached the freshman football team, the 
tennis team, and basketball team. One 
of his best known statements is, "Let's 
sneak in, take the game, and then sneak 
out; leave the rest up to the crowd." 

John P. Hummel, Jr., sophomore, was 
the head manager of the '47 team. 
"Monkey or John Paul" was a football 
player himself who had been injured in 
high school and who was not able to go 
out for football in college. He was as- 
sisted by freshman George W. Rodgers, 
Jr., better known as "Buck." 

Although the team was defeated in its 
first two games by Bucknell and Mor-

Dutchmen have been "flying" pretty low. The season record stands at 1-4 
going into today's action. And with the exception of heartbreaking loss to 
an unbeaten, united Wilkes College the squad has not displayed its expect- 
ed potential. 

That last-second loss to Wilkes seemed to set the pattern for the rest 
of the season, for after an open date (which did not do anybody any 
good) the team travelled to Drexel and practically relived the harrowing 
experience of two weeks before. Our Dutchmen went into the fourth 
quarter with a 10-7 lead. Suddenly the roof caved in. 

The Drexel Dragons completed a touchdown pass that was partially 
blocked by Dan Chambers, who up until this juncture of the season has 
been an outstanding defensive stalwart, being named lineman of the game 
twice. From that point on in the game it was like trying to stop a snowball 
rolling down the Alps. 

The Dragons added another score to hand the Dutchmen their second 
consecutive defeat to the tune of 18-10. 

In the ensuing three games the squad has been able to upend only 
Muhlenberg, a victory sandwiched by losses to Moravian and Dickinson. 
In those three games Valley has gained 614 total yards to the opposition's 
709 yards. That pretty much tells the story. Rather than going into pain- 
ful details of the games (all except Muhlenberg's) I would like to devote 
the remaining space to praise several individuals for some performances 
which are noteworthy. 

Other than the mention accorded Dan Chambers, Dennis Tulli has 
been named lineman of the game on two occasions, the latest being last 
Saturday's game. Steve Brandsberg earned the recognition one week and 
was named to the ECAC first team. Back of the game honors have been 
shared by Bobby Mead and John Fasnacht each twice and Taki Bobotas. 
John was also named to the first team all ECAC one week. 

We might have been in worse shape against Moravian if Fasnacht 
had not been able to punt effectively, deeply in our own territory. His 
punts averaged 53.5 yards which is fantastic (40 yards per punt is excep- 
tional in college ball.) Sophomores of the game have been Dennis Tulli, 
Brandsberg twice and most recently Joe Torre. The squad's five seniors 
have done a commendable job thus far rendering leadership to the troops 
(which is no easy job when you are not having a winning season.) They 
are Bob Hawk, John Havens, Bob Martalus, Dan Chambers and Captain 
Larry Painter. 

The squad hopes to give you parents and alumni an afternoon of 
real football enjoyment and a prolonged Thanksgiving vacation to you 
students. 



HOMECOMING: DUTCHMEN HOST LIONS 

Opponent — Albright Lions, Reading, Penna. 
Colors— Red - White 

Head Coach — John Potskoan, 12th season, record 48-46-3 
Captain — George Gamber, no. 52, center Paul Chaiet, no. 64, right 
guard 

Strengths: 

The Albright Lions are an outstanding defensive team and have a 
strong offensive line. Freshman back Charles Zimmerman, one of the 
top backs in the North MAC, has gained 529 yards in six games and 
will be a thorn in the side of LVC. Senior captain George Gamber is 
an outstanding offensive center and was named sophomore of the year 
two years ago in the ECAC. Another standout is Al Esposito, a senior 
tackle weighing 230 and 6 feet tall. Carman Comunale, a senior, is 
probably their best all around player. Carman plays offensive end, 
defensive back and does the punting for the Lions. 
Weaknesses: 

The Albright Lions show a weakness on pass defense and have 
given up considerable yardage this season. The offensive passing power 
has not been as strong as suspected this year. 
Offense: 

The Lions are mostly a running team and should be expected to 
stick to the ground most of the time. Players to watch should be 
Charles Zimmerman, halfback, and Tom Bowersox, fullback. 
Defense: 

Albright has a young defensive team, and they have done a fine job 
so far this season. Their defense will be a 50 Oklahoma and a 4-3 
defense with both using an umbrella secondary. They have strong line- 
backers and a big defensive line. 
Outlook: 

We must stop Albright's running game if we are to win. Our pass- 
ing offense must improve if we are to score enough to win. With 
determination and lots of spirit the Dutchmen should show the Home- 
coming crowd a good, exciting game. 



WELCOME: Parents, Friends, and Alumni 
to one of LVC's most exciting Homecomings!

Lady Luck 



Passes Valley 

by ''Running Water" 

Saturday, the twenty-ninth of October, in the Year of Our Lord 
Nineteen Hundred and Sixty-Six, the Lebanon Valley Harriers traveled to 
Muhlenberg to face the Mules on their Homecoming. The Valley Team 
was hindered by two of their top runners' being either ill or on a temporary 
sabbatical. Dick Williams, a junior hailing from Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, 
and majoring in history, and Tom Micka, a sopohmore from Harrisburg, 
majoring in chemistry, were unfortunately indisposed. 

Jim Davis, an up and coming sophomore from Paramus, New Jersey, 
majoring in history, proved his ability in running by tying co-captain Dick 
Williams for first place. Senior co-captain Paul Murphy, majoring in 
political science and coming from Meadville, Pennsylvania, ran one of his 
best races. In so doing, he placed third in the Muhlenberg-Lebanon Valley 
Cross Country Meet. 

Agu Laane, originally Estonia (in Euorpe), placed fourth on the 
Valley's team on Saturday and easily beat Muhlenberg's first man. Agu is 
majoring in foreign languages. 

Terry Nitka, a freshman from Abington, Pennsylvania, is a pre- 
veterinary major because, he says, "My dad is a vet and I'm going to be 
one too." Terry ran well on Saturday and was just edged by the Mule's 
first man. 

Senior J. Morgan Waring, hailing from 
Somerset, Massachusetts, and majoring 
in elementary education, placed sixth. "A 
connoiseur of the finer things of life," 
J. Morgan, placed seventh overall on the 
5.2 mile course in Allentown. 

Leslie Bush, from Linesville, Pennsyl- 
vania, is a sophomore majoring in psy- 
chology. Les, a fine runner in high school, 
placed next on the Valley's roster last 
Saturday. Leroy Frey, a junior from 
Manheim Township High School, is ma- 
joring in chemistry. 

Hard on the heels of the Mule's top 
runners came Rich Crothers and Mike 
Burns. Rich, a resident of Sapporo, Penn- 
sylvania, is majoring in "undecided," 
while Mike is majoring in pre-engineer- 
ing: Mike is from Mountville, Pennsyl- 
vania, and bad two years of varsity run- 
ning in high school. 

Carl Sabold has been running well the 
last few weeks. However, due to a slight 
ailment, Carl was unable to run in last 
Saturday's meet. 

As is easily discernable from above, 
the outcome of the meet with Muhlenberg 
was a "smashing success." Lebanon Val- 
ley triumphed easily, winning by a score 
of 17-47. The Mules had the "tar" kicked 
out of them — period. 

Surveying the Valley's Harrier's record 



Sports Experiment 
Proves Successful 

October 15th marked a new beginning 
in inter-sorority fraternity relationships 
on this campus. Although both Philo 
and Clio have competed separately in 
intramural sports, this is the first time 
that they have met in open rivalry. The 
sport was field hockey. 

Clio had a definite advantage over 
Philo since none of the brothers partic- 
ipating had any idea of how the sport 
was played. With one half hour to go 
before the game, the officials gave the 
male team instructions on what to do 
and what not to do; unfortunately, the 
what-not-to-dos were accomplished better 
than the what-to-dos. 

The female team took the field with 
determination in their eyes and skill in 
their hands while Philo took the field with 
questions in their eyes and unskilled 
hands. After the opening bully, Clio took 
the ball towards the Philo goal but due 
to the work of Philo's goalie, Sue Cum- 
mings, no points were scored. 

The girls were in remarkable physical 
shape but the boys were somewhat less 
than "in shape," and due to the fact that 
no time outs are awarded during the 
course of the game, the Philo team in- 
curred injuries for the sake of resting 
Periods. Without these injuries, the in- 
jured would not have been able to con- 
tinue the game. Clio's goalie, Bobbie 
Harro, was somewhat amazed after the 
brothers first goal was scored but no less 
amazed than the Philo team. The second 
naif saw Philo scoring two more goals 
^hile Clio was blanketed. 




Jim Davis leads LV runners over Mules 

thus far, one can say Lady Luck has not 
visited our campus yet this year. Two 
weekends ago at Moravian College, the 
Dutchmen were edged out by one point, 
27-28, in a dynamic race. 

The Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon Val- 
ley are looking forward to taming the 
Lions of Albright on Homecoming Day 
here on our course at 11 a.m. The team 
is looking forward to another enthusiastic 
crowd seeing them run the Lions back to 
Reading. 



Women's Hockey Team 
Closes Season With Tie 

The women's field hockey team closed- 
out its season with a 0-0 tie at Dickinson 
College, Saturday, October 29. As the 
score shows, the battle was mainly a de- 
fensive one, although both teams had 
several near goals. 

The girls closed the ledger on their 
1966 season with a 3-3-1 record. The 
wins were against Millersville, Moravian, 
and Messiah. The Dutch gals were de- 
feated by Shippensburg in the game's 
final thirty seconds, by Elizabeth town, 
and by Muhlenberg. 

Three departing seniors will leave big 
holes for the underclassmen to fill. Those 
leaving are Julia Looker, right inner; 
Bobbie Macaw, center forward; and Mari- 
pat Smith, left halfback. Underclassmen 
who will not be returning are MaryLou 
LaBella, and Phyllis Thomas. 

The team was very fortunate to have 
had its coach, Mrs. Jaci Walters, back for 
her second year. It is hoped that she will 
remain with Valley in the future.

Competition Runs High 
In Intramural Program 

Again this year, the volleyball intra- 
murals have met with enthusiastic re- 
sponse. The games are played every Mon- 
day night at 7:30 and 8 p.m. and every 
other Wednesday night at 9 and 9:30 p.m. 
The competition is keen, with all of the 
teams seriously interested in the volley- 
ball trophy of 1966. 

The twelve teams vying for the cham- 
pionship are: Clio 1 and 2, who are de- 
fending their first place title and the ac- 
companying supremacy trophy; Delphian 
1 and 2, Vickroy Frosh, Vickroy Inde- 
pendents, Mary Green Frosh, Mary Green 
Independents, Sheridan, Laughlin, Com- 
muters, and SAI, the newest addition to 
our group of teams. 

The games are set up and played in 
connection with the Women's Athletic 
Association and points are awarded to 
the players which may be applied to fu- 
ture recognition awards and WAA mem- 
bership. Volleyball, the most popular 
of all the intramural programs, is organ- 
ized and managed by three sports leaders, 
Sue Jones, Betty Levens, and Maryann 
Eastman. 

The games, as now scheduled, will be 
completed before Christmas vacation. 
Best of luck to all participants! 

Intramurals for men at the Valley con- 
sist of a seventeen-sport program this 
year. Heading the intramural program 
are Coach Darlington and director of 
intramurals, Joe Mowrer. 

The sports are divided into two cate- 
gories, major and minor, with a differ- 
ent amount of points being awarded for 
major sports and minor ones. The ma- 
jor sports are touch football, volleyball, 
basketball, wrestling, bowling, swimming, 
softball, and track. The minor sports are 
ping-pong, cross country, handball, 
squash, golf, tennis, badminton, weight- 
lifting, and horseshoes. 

The points awarded for major and 
minor sports are as follows: 

major sports minor sports 
first 12 7 

second 9 5 

third 7 4 

fourth 5 3 

fifth 3 2 

sixth 1 1 

The seven teams participating in this 
year's program are: 

Knights, Philo, Kalo, Residents, Sin- 
fonia, Frosh A, Frosh B. 

This program is well under way. For 
each sport there is awarded a trophy to 
the winning team, and at the end of the 
year at the All-Sports banquet the Su- 
premacy Trophy is awarded to the team 
with the most points. 

The first sport completed this year 
was cross-country, a minor one, and the 
results were as follows: 
Kalo— 7 
Knights— 5 
Residents — 4 
Sinfonia — 3 
Philo— 2 
Frosh A— 
Frosh B — 
This is the only sport completed at this 
time, so the team standings for the Su- 
premacy Race are the same as the above 
cross-country results. Touch football is 
just about over, with a few games left 
to be played. The Knights seem to have 
football won with a record of 11-0 and 
one game to go. Once this sport is com- 
pleted a new intramural team standing 
will result. 

Intramural tennis and intramural ping- 
pong are both being played, with intra- 
mural volleyball starting soon. Bowling 
has also started and will last until about 
March with matches being held every 
Wednesday night. Coming up in the fu- 
ture will be intramural basketball and 
badminton. Be sure to hand in the sign- 
up sheets on time so Coach Darlington 
can schedule the games. Check the ping- 
pong schedules and bowling schedules 
which are posted in the gym to find out 
which teams bowl and which teams play. 

The program seems to be getting off to 
a good start and under Coach Darling- 
ton's guidance it should run smoothly the 
rest of the year. Sign up on time and 
play your games and matches so the 
program doesn't get behind and force us 
to rush at the end of the year. 




Sam Willman and opponent in a pre-season workout 

Matmen To Begin 
Work This Month 

This is a preview report on Coach Petrofes's squad this year. The 
team will be captained for the second year by Sam Willman from Mt. 
Wolf, Pennsylvania. Sam will be seen either at the 130 or 127 lb. class. 
His 1964-65 record was 8-1-1, while his record last year was 11-0-0 and 
he earned a 3rd place in the MAC. Sam also holds the school record for 
most career falls and most falls in one season. By the end of this season 
Sam should break all the wrestling records at LV. 

Last year, Coach Petrofes guided the Valley matmen to their first 
winning season in ten years with a 6-5 record. The awards for outstanding 
wrestlers went to Sam Willman and Harry Wertsch last year. This year 
the Valley has a twelve match schedule with the MAC being held at 
Moravian, March 3-4. Coach Petrofes says that this will be one of the 
toughest yet for a Valley team. 



Some of the prospective wrestlers and 
their weight classes are as follows: 123 
lb. — Bob Laughead, a junior, and Carl 
Layne, a sophomore; 130 lb. — Bud Kauf- 
mann, junior; Rich Kaufman, sophomore; 
and Agu Laane, freshman; 137 lb. — Sam 
Willman, senior, Rich Kaufmann, sopho- 
more, Bob Jennings, sophomore, and 
John Procopio, freshman; 145 lb. — Kerry 
Althouse, sophomore, Jay Mengel, junior, 
and Joe Hovetter, freshman; 152-160-167 
lb. classes — Terry Nitka, freshman; Dave 
Ranc, sophomore, Joe Torre, sophomore, 
Steve Barbaccia, sophomore, Tom Gang- 
wer, junior, and Harry Wertsch, junior, 



who is on a temporary sabbatical until 
second semester. In the upper weights 
Steve Brandsberg, sophomore, and Rich 
Basta, sophomore, who lettered as a 
freshman last season, will be returning. 
Outstanding freshmen to watch will be 
Jack Howie, Rich Moyer, and Ross Cak 
vert. 

This is the way things stand at present 
and Coach Petrofes isn't making any pre- 
diction because he hasn't seen some of 
football players, who are coming out for 
the team, in action yet. The team is work- 
ing out on an individual basis now and 
will start formal practice later this month.

avian, they scared both teams badly in 
the closely contested outings! The third 
game against City College of New York 
was a runaway for LVC as the offense 
put across five touchdowns while the de- 
fense performed brilliantly. 

The Albright victory was the high point 
of the season as the Flying Dutchmen de- 
feated their arch-rival. A letdown came 
with the next game when the squad was 
overrun by the Pennsylvania Military Col- 
lege. At Homecoming the Dutchmen 
scored a resounding victory by defeating 
Blue Ridge College 19-0. The Franklin 
and Marshall team was played to a score- 
less tie, and LVC finished its season by 
keeping clean the "never-lost-to-Juniata" 
record.

Spring Symposium 
Closes Celebration 
Of LV Centennial 

The last of the Centennial celebrations will be presented at the 
Centennial Symposium and Convocation, April 6-8, 1967. The Symposium 
and Convocation will, perhaps, be unique in attempting to create a true 
community of scholars, irrespective of age, position, or degrees. 

Three distinguished scholars have been chosen to speak at the Sym- 
posium on the topic, "The Next Century: Crisis and Opportunity", from 
the viewpoint of their respective disciplines. 

The humanities will be represented by Huston Smith, Professor of 
Philosophy at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Charles C. Price, 
University Professor of Chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania, will 
present the viewpoint of the natural sciences. And, speaking for the 
social Sciences will be Kenneth E. Boulding, Professor of Economics at 
the University of Michigan. 

The speaker for the Convocation will be Henry Steele Commager, 
Spranza lecturer and Professor of History at Amherst College, who will 
present a topic of his own choosing. 



The Symposium will begin on Thurs- 
day, April 6, with registration and lunch 
(at which the students are invited to join 
the guests). Huston Smith and Charles 
Price, the first speakers, will present their 
views concerning the topic in the after- 
noon. Dr. Boulding will speak in the 
evening. 

Students and faculty will be organized 
into one of the three academic areas — ac- 
cording to their interests — on Friday. It 
is hoped that each discussion group will 
be led by a professor in the particular 
area from another college. 

The discussion groups will debate how 
the topic for the Symposium fits within 
their disciplines. They will also draft 
questions which will be submitted to a 
panel discussion to be held in the after- 
noon. 

The panel, combining the three Sym- 
posium speakers, will discuss some of the 
questions submitted from the morning 
and will attempt to draw some concl- 
usions on the topic. Theodore Ullman, a 
brilliant pianist, will present a recital that 
evening. 

The Convocation will take place on 
Saturday, April 8, with an academic pro- 
cession. Following that, Dr. Commager, 
the Convocation speaker, will present the 
topic he has chosen for this final day of 
the Centennial celebration. 

Throughout this Symposium and Con- 
vocation, the students are urged to inter- 
act as closely as possible with the guest 
speakers and the guests from other in- 
stitutions. 




Don Kitchell leads marching band 

LV Band Marches 
In New Uniforms 

This year the LVC Blue and White 
marching band sported new uniforms at 
the first home football game, on Septem- 
ber 24. 

The uniforms were designed by Mr. 
William A. Batchelor, an Instructor in 
Art, and were furnished by the Ostwald 
Uniform Company of New York. 

The new uniforms consist of a basic 
tuxedo style garment covered by a special 
overlay for football marching band for- 
mations. The overlay is in white naug- 
ahyde with silver and blue trim. On the 
back is a modern impression of the colege 
seal designed also by Mr. Batchelor. Each 
sleeve of the basic tuxedo jacket has the 
letters LVC on the shoulder. 

This basic uniform will be worn at all 
formal evening concerts while the women 
band members wear black evening gowns. 



The group discussions and panel discus- 
sions, as well as the meals, will provide 
excellent opportunities for students to get 
to know their disciplines better, and get 
to know some of the leading scholars in 
their fields. 



Students And Faculty 
Aid Annual Session 
Of Historians 

The annual meeting of the Pennsyl- 
vania Historical Association was held in 
Lebanon and on the LVC campus on 
Friday and Saturday, October 21-22. The 
meeting this year was regarded as the 
best attended and the most effectively 
conducted gathering in the organization's 
35-year history, according to a spokesman 
for the PHA. 

Total attendance was approximately 
270 during the two-day affair which con- 
stituted the Centennial event of the de- 
partment of history and political science. 
Among those in attendance were 25 stu- 
dents, 20 members of the faculty and ad- 
ministration and 10 faculty wives. 

Dr. J. Cutler Andrews, president of 
the Association, presided over the opening 
affairs at the Treadway Inn in Lebanon. 
President Miller greeted the visitors at 
the Friday luncheon. 

On Saturday the PHA heard an ad- 
dress prepared by Dr. Paul A. W. Wal- 
lace, entitled "The Founding of Lebanon 
Valley College: An Experiment in De- 
mocracy." Because of the author's illness, 
this address was read by Rev. Bruce Sou- 
ders, professor of English, Shenandoah 
College, Winchester, Virginia. 

Historical exhibits were available to 
the visitors in the Administration Build- 
ing and the library. A selection of Dr. 
Wallace's books was shown along with a 
display about the Ephrata Cloisters. 

Dr. Ralph S. Shay was elected to the 
council of the PHA at the business meet- 
ing Saturday morning in the chapel lec- 
ture hall. The council, which includes 
past-presidents and twelve elected per- 
sons, works with the organization's offi- 
cers to direct the activities and program 
of the association. Dr. Shay will serve on 
the council for three years. 

It was announced at the business meet- 
ing that the 1967 meeting will be held 
in Beaver Falls, with Geneva College 
serving as host, and the 1968 gathering 
will take place in Pottstown under the 
sponsorship of the Pottstown historical 
society. 

Students who attended sessions of the 
meeting and/or rendered service at the 
registration desk, in parking assignments, 
and in other responsibilities were Les- 
Erick Achey, Paul Alexy, Mrs. Suzette 
Arnold, Bonita Baker, John Barkow, Ellen 
Bishop, Mrs. Alma Bobb, Robert Brandt, 
Harold Burkholder, David Clemens, 
James Davis, John Havens, Everett Ham- 
macher, David Hoffner, Michael Jones, 
John Mondon, Lewis Nieburg, John 
Nornhold, Paul Pickard, Larry Schauer, 
James Shearer, Kenneth Sipe, William 
Spancake, William Watson, and Daniel 
Womer. 



Foundation Of Science 
To Award Fellowships 

The National Academy of Sciences- 
National Research Council has been call- 
ed upon again to advise the National 
Science Foundation in the selection of 
candidates for the Foundation's program 
of graduate and regular post-doctoral fel- 
lowships. Panels of outstanding scientists 
appointed by the Academy-Research 
Council will evaluate applications of all 
candidates. Final selection will be made 
by the Foundation, with awards to be an- 
nounced on March 15, 1967. 

Fellowships will be awarded for study 
in the mathematical, physical, medical, 
biological and engineering sciences; also 
in anthropology, economics (excluding 
business administration), geography, the 
history and philosophy of science, lin- 
guistics, political science, psychology (ex- 
cluding clinical psychology), and sociol- 
ogy (not including social work). Appli- 
cation may be made by college seniors, 
graduate students working toward a de- 
gree, postdoctoral students, and others 
with equivalent training and experience. 
All applicants must be citizens of the 
United States and will be judged solely 
on the basis of ability. 

Applicants for the graduate awards will 
be required to take the Graduate Record 
Examinations designed to test scientific 
aptitude and achievement. The examina- 
tions, administered by the Educational 
Testing Service, will be given on January 
21, 1967, at designated centers through- 
out the United States and certain foreign 
countries. 

The annual stipends for Graduate Fel- 
lows are as follows: $2400 for the first 
level; $2600 for the intermediate level; 
and $2800 for the terminal level. De- 
pendency allowances and allowances for 
tuition, fees, and limited travel will also 
be provided. 

Further information and application 
materials may be obtained from the Fel- 
lowship Office, National Academy of Sci- 
ences-National Research Council, 2101 
Constitution Avenue, N. W., Washington, 
D. C. 20418. The deadline for the re- 
ceipt of applications for graduate fellow- 
ships is December 9, 1966, and for regu- 
lar post-doctoral fellowships, December 
12, 1966. 



KEYBOARD 

(Continued from Page 2) 

presented Adam and his descendants as 
'whites' in their paintings. 

But if Christianity, which we are told 
is our only hope, has become a partner 
in the furtherance of race-conflict, where 
else do we turn to for such hope as the 
doctrine itself tells us will lead to some 
'reward'? What reward then, when our 
Christian institutions themselves preach 
"love" (the meaning of which is not in 
the dictionary) and at the same time 
proudly condone a racial "separate-but- 
equal" doctrine? Why mock Christianity 
then? 

Homecoming 

At this point, we have seen that there 
is reason to talk about colour and sup- 
eriority since no sensible basis could be 
used to determine them. If we still ac- 
cept that mankind is fundamentally (or 
naturally) divided into 'white' and 'black' 
then, by all means, let's follow the ex- 
ample of the Keyboard (of a piano) and 
harmonize sweet music enough to cleanse 
our sinful souls to the realization that 
such music is the "fruit of love." If, on 
the other hand, we can face the facts of 
life enough to realize that we are all 
'coloured,' then mankind certainly has a 
great future, for history will indeed record 
that for once in its course, mankind has 
acquired such 'universal education' as to 
make it superior to lower animals. 

Since the idea of "Homecoming" is to 
reunite — alumni, parents and friends — in 
a homely spirit of oneness and love, it 
will be necessary for all of us to use this 
occasion as a turning point in our narrow 
lives to come to our senses; so that come 
"Thanksgiving" we will have the new- 
found privilege of thanking Almighty God 
for having shown us the path that tri- 
umphs evil and hate, and realize that 
what matters most in life lies within 
the province of the individual — the de- 
velopment of his inner life, without which 
man can not be man. 

Good luck to all of you!

History Students 
Visit Philadelphia 

History students studying the American 
colonial and early national period took a 
field trip to Philadelphia on October 27, 
to tour the one-square mile area in which 
our country's forefathers worked and 
lived at the time of the American Revo- 
lutionary War. Dr. Elizabeth M. Geffen, 
associate professor of history carefully 
planned and organized the walking tour 
so that the class was able to visit twenty- 
three historical sites and tour seven im- 
portant buildings. 

Before the trip, Dr. Geffen showed 
the class slides of Independence Hall area 
before any restoration work was started. 
At that time, about the middle of the 
1950's, large ugly buildings surrounded 
the area and hid the building from view. 
Through the work of Dr. David H. Wal- 
lace '50, son of the LVC historian, Dr. 
Paul A. W. Wallace, these properties 




The Merchant's Exchange 

have been bought, the buildings torn 
down, and a park area established. 

The interior of Independence 'Hall also 
showed change. The idea behind the great 
restoration project was to have the build- 
ing look now is it did in 1776. 

The class toured several of the old 
churches, such as Christ Church, and the 
Friends' Meeting House, where men like 
Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson, 
prayed and worshipped. 

Architectural forms of the Colonial 
period were also emphasized. Elfreth's 
Alley, the oldest residential street in the 
United States, showed the style and size 
of an early house. The Merchants' Ex- 
change building is an example of an un- 
usual and unique form of architecture. 

The trip ended at a monument about 
which few people know — the Tomb of 
the Unknown Soldier of the American 
Revolution.

Original Symphony 
Highlights Concert 

This year the newly renovated Lynch Memorial Gymnasium will be 
used for a Lebanon Valley College Symphony Orchestra concert. This will 
take place on November 21, 1966, at 8:00 P.M. and will feature a well 
known guest bass soloist, Marvin Hayes, and will premier a movement 
from an original symphony by the orchestra's conductor, Thomas Lanese. 

The concert will open with an overture by Beethoven, Egmont. This 
overture is part of the incidental music to the play of the same title by 
Goethe. All the Egmont music presents a series of most profound and 
moving tone pictures and possesses dramatic forces describing in music the 
melodrama of Goethe. 



Next Mr. Hayes will present a little 
known but beautiful Bach cantata and 
three Negro spirituals. Mr. Hayes has 
just sung a Town 'Hall recital (in New 
York City) and had enthusiastic acclaim 
from both the public and the critics. He is 
certainly among the new, young artists 
of the future. The cantata that he will sing 
is Ich Habe Genug for solo bass, strings 
and oboe. This cantata, like many others 
of Bach, deals with death. 

After a brief intermission the orchestra 
will present the first movement of Sym- 
phony for Orchestra 1963, the Allegro 
Vivo movement, by Mr. Lanese. This 
movement uses conservative tonal style 
and free rhythmic changes to give the 
music a dance-like character and contem- 
porary style. This is its first performance. 
The entire symphony will be performed 
by the New Orleans Philharmonic, one of 
the country's well known orchestras, in 




Marvin Hayes, featured bass soloist 



January 1967. 

Finally, the concert will be concluded 
by Three Dance Episodes (from Rodeo) 
by Copland. A number of American 
folk songs are woven into this music. Two 
songs are incorporated into the first epis- 
ode: // he'd be a buckaroo by his trade 
and Sis Joe. A square dance is the prin- 
ciple theme for the third movement, the 
Hoe-Down. 

Tickets may be purchased from any 
one of the forty-eight members of the 
Lebanon Valley College Symphony Or- 
chestra. 



ICCP To Feature 
A "Topless" Bunny 

Kappa Lambda Sigma and Delta 
Lambda Sigma will present the seventh 
annual Inter-Collegiate Competition Pro- 
gram on December 2. The show will take 
place in Engle Hall at 8 p.m. 

For the last six years, Kalo and Del- 
phian have brought together a collection 
of acts from the various organizations. 
The acts are usually skits, singing groups, 
or musical combos. Past winners have 
been such acts as "Ziegenfuss and Dunkel- 
heim," a Pennsylvania Dutch Romeo and 
Juliet, and the Philo Four, a folksinging 
group. 

This year eleven groups will be repre- 
sented: Clio, WAA, RWSGA, Beta Beta 
Beta, APO, Philo, SCA, Knights, and the 
sophomore class. Kalo and Delphian will 
also present a skit but will not be eligible 
for a trophy. 

There will be trophies given for first 
and second place, as in the past. 

Oh, about the "topless" bunny, well 
this year she won't wear the rabbit's ears 
which go with the costume.

"TW-3" 



The 1966 Homecoming week certainly merits the title "That was the 
week that Was." For, this particular homecoming week was blessed with 
the arrival of school spirit, something hitherto known only to a few at 
Lebanon Valley College. Once here, the "school spirit" saw fit to take a 
rest stop on campus, and the results were astounding. 

Normally mild, unassuming faculty and staff members doffed their 
tasseled Pickelhaubes for straw "Homecoming Hats." Elsewhere on 
campus dormitories became veritable art galleries displaying numerous 
versions of "Beat Albright" signs. Those new to the science building 
harbored a sneaking suspicion all week that they were in the wrong rooms 
because a multitude of signs obliterated the familiar landmarks. 

But, there was another reason for the students to feel as if they were 
in the wrong rooms for classes. The first three nights of the week saw a 
car caravan to Lebanon, an automobile sacrifice, and a pep rally in the 
middle of a blinding wind and rain storm that sent the less hearty scam- 
pering for higher, drier ground (the town below was beginning to disappear 
under water). Thus, the "school spirit" saw to it that the only midnight oil 
burned was to thaw and dry out the participants in each evening's fes- 
tivities. 

For a brief time, the "school spirit" was unseated by the "asinine 
apparition," as the few quadrupeds of the college proceeded to set afire 
the product of many long hours of hard work by several members of the 
freshman class. Evidently, the "asinine apparition" was not appeased by 
this meager offering, so those filled with the spirit(s?) went on to cause 
enough trouble to have the nimble-footed Annville Police sprint to the 
campus — to rescue some chickens which had "wandered" into the girls' 
dormitories and restore order. Whereupon, the "school spirit" was re- 
turned to favor. 

It was exciting to witness the spectacle that took place for Home- 
coming week. Of course, it was unfortunate that some of the townspeople 
were upset by one evenings' entertainment (or lack of it). But, since they 
did not march on campus and throw bricks, ink bottles, and Molitov cock- 
tails at our library, it seems fair to assume that they quickly recovered. 

The "school spirit" did an excellent job for Lebanon Valley College 
during its brief stay here. May it return often to haunt is all — without the 
"asinine apparition." — P.P. 



DEPARTMENTAL FEATURE — SOCIOLOGY 



The Importance Of Concern 



Ramblings 



Perhaps this writer's sense of values is warped, but it seems strange 
that a person who has gone to schools for eighteen years and has written a 
doctoral thesis should have to collect chapel slips on Tuesday morn- 
ings 

While harping on such unusual topics, the writer would like to apolo- 
gize to the football team. It seems that there were at least 1,000 people in 
the Valley stands on November 5 (other estimates go up to 2,000) — so 
much the worse). 

Basically, football is a rough sport, but a man does better in any sport 
if he at least thinks that someone in the stands cares whether his neck gets 
broken. One or two thousand people can create a tremendous amount of 
silence. 

A few words for the valiant few who keep our sterling and French 
china spotless — the dishroom men. Imagine if you can these workers 
getting to the cafeteria at the hour of seven in the morning. After eating 
breakfast, these men (there is usually at least one, and on St. Patrick's Day 
there are two) begin their work. 

They finish working at 9:30. If the job had had the four or five men 
it needs, they could be finished by 8:45. 

When the head of the cafeteria is asked about this all she can say is, 
"I'm sorry, but I don't have anyone else to put on the job." 

The egg plates, juice glasses, and silverware are left to the student 
who needs the money badly enough. He is caught and stuck in the middle 

Maybe someday he will quit, and there will be no clean dishes for 
lunch. — J.K. 



Do you find yourself concerned or 
preoccupied with problems of social in- 
volvement? Do you feel compelled to 
discuss them with others to resolve them? 
Does all the talking you do lead only to 
more talking and never to effective ac- 
tion by yourself or your group? If you 
can give affirmative answers to these 
questions and if you can think of per- 
sonal examples, you are an "average," 
"normal" LVC student and among the 
majority. 

Every day, in his contacts with other 
people, the "average" LVC student lapses 
into conversations about his personal 
problems concerning individual or group 
interaction. These conversations range 
from the trivial to the ultranoble and 
philosophical. For example, boy-girl prob- 
lems often stimulate only mundane dis- 
cussions or debates while other persons 
tend to philosophize non-realistically 
about involvement in current social ac- 
tion: civil rights movements, VISTA, 
Peace Corps and Viet Nam. 

These conversations could initiate ac- 
tion and they are not inherently wasteful, 
but on this campus these conversations 
are often ends in themselves rather 
than means to an end. If we only play 
with words and use these problems only 
for verbal theoretical exercise, we waste 
time and energy which could be applied 
more effectively to other intellectual pur- 
suits. 

Intellectualism and Isolation 

Some students and faculty members 
here have occasionally charged our school 
with having a non-intellectual atmosphere 
or even one of anti-intellectualism. Isn't 
it likely that these charges are reinforced 
and perhaps justified when this "all-talk- 
no-action" policy is practiced? More 
specifically, isn't it likely that because this 
talk is wasteful and ineffectual, it does 
contribute somewhat to the low level of 
intellectualism which some observe here? 

We also hear that this college is iso- 
lated geographically, and therefore soc- 
ially, "from the world," from any mean- 
ingful happenings, from any activity that

is progressive, and socially unconcerned. 
However, because of being so far removed 
from the real action, we are said to be 
apathetic and socially unconcerned. How- 
ever, geographic isolation does not neces- 
sitate social isolation. Maybe some of us 
use our geographical isolation as an ex- 
cuse to ignore social problems. 

More of us have at least a budding 
awareness about social problems, as indi- 
cated by the frequent discussions about 
social involvement. Our problem is, we 
are aware but not concerned. 

Apathy and Social Life 

A few common examples may serve to 
illustrate our awareness without concern. 
We are aware of the perennial problem 
here of having little campus "social life," 
we discuss the problem and complain 
while the social functions which are pro- 
vided receive so little support that an 
organization considers it a risk rather 
than a service to sponsor social events. 

Last year we were aware of the seem- 
ingly apathetic attitude at LVC toward 
participation in particular activities of the 
civil rights movements. We discussed 
whether LVC faculty and students would 
support active participation in demon- 
strations, and then the whole issue evap- 
orated with no resultant participation or 
action. 

Problems of Responsibility 

Bringing this down to the personal 
level, we even discuss boy -girl problems 
and counsel and advise each other and 
then dismiss the topic without intending 
to put into effect what has been discussed. 
What we need is to develop this awareness 
of problems into genuine concern which 
can in turn stimulate active, effective in- 
volvement. Why hasn't this concern and 
involvement developed? One of La Vie's 
previous feature articles pointed out that 
assignments are so weighty in terms of 
mere quantity that there is no time for 
"study in depth" or intelligent consider- 
ation of the information we "learn." Does 
this academic problem precipitate this 
social problem of being aware but not 
concerned and involved because there is 
just no time left for this? Could it also 



be possible that we lack the sense of re- 
sponsibility needed to feel real concern 
and to be involved? 

The week of activities preceding Home- 
coming Weekend serves as a pertinent ex- 
ample. There was obvious campus effort 
to be concerned and involved socially with 
college life and spirit. The activities pro- 
vided toward this end were well meant 
and well planned but they functioned 
rather to demonstrate the irresponsibility 
of some participants and consequently 
the effectiveness of the activities was 
thwarted. 

Why do we lack a consistent, depend- 
able sense of responsibility which would 
enable our social efforts to be successful? 
There are certainly many reasons, some 
of which have been recognized and sug- 
gested by students. Among these reasons 
is the fact that at this college we are not 
challenged or stimulated to take on much 
responsibility, personal or otherwise, even 
if we can find the time for it. 

Questions and Tradition 

Frequently, when we question a rule or 
policy which we consider unfair or un- 
suitable in the context of a college com- 
munity, we are reminded that the college 
serves in the capacity of loco parentis. 
Perhaps this limits our opportunities for 
personal responsibility; could this college 
role not also be interpreted to include 
creating more opportunities for student 
responsibility? 

When we question the appropriateness 
pf the hours of permissions in the dorms 
or the inflexibility of our class attendance 
requirements, we are reminded of these 
limitations of personal responsibility. 
Often the methods of instruction through 
which we receive our academic material 
— "spoon feeding" — make us passive re- 
cipients rather than active practitioners of 
academic responsibility. 

While such traditional policies are 
Often slow to change, individually we 
should all feel a challenge to discipline 
ourselves to become responsible in our 
concern and involvements so that ef- 
fective social activity on this campus will 
become the rule rather than the exception. 



AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL 



Thanksgiving 

by Ade Hedd 

"O beautiful for spacious skies, 
For amber waves of grain; 
For purple mountain majesties, 
Above the fruited plain; 

America! America! God shed His grace on thee. 
And crown thy good with brotherhood 
From sea to shining sea." 

When Katherine Lee Bates so beautifully expressed the hopes and 
aspirations of America in the first stanza of her poem "America, the Beau- 
tiful," she did so on the conviction that Americans will be ever thankful 
for their unique heritage — "unique" in every sense of the word. 

From the very start, Americans assumed there was a universal signi- 
ficance to the New World experiment. On this continent, providentially 
empty, they were creating a society untrammeled by the outworn errors 
and the decadent institutions of the past. Here was the opportunity to 
realize to the fullest man's capacity for human dignity, for freedom and 
equality. It was the manifest destiny of the United States to create a model 
that would show the way to the people of the rest of the globe. It was 
this the revolutionaries of 1776 had in mind when they proclaimed, "The 
cause of America is the cause of mankind." 

Apparently, Americans had a justifiable 
and sanguine confidence that paralleled 
the 'dream' of Milton as he penned in his 
"Areopagitica": "What could a man re- 
quire more from a nation so pliant and 
prone to seek after knowledge? What wants 
there to such a towardly and pregnant 
soil but wise and faithful laborers, to 
make a knowing people, a nation of 
Prophets, or Sages and of Worthies?" 
s Yes, "a nation' ... of worthies". A 
nation destined to the highest place in 
political and economic power the world 
has ever known. And, indeed, "a nation 
so pliant ... to seek after knowledge." 
But, alas, apart from all this America's 
name morally is bad. But why? The an- 
swer to this is only found in the meaning 
of Thanksgiving. 



Thanksgiving: 

The indigenous natives of the American 
continent — the Indians — godly and human 
as they were, offered the Pilgrims their 
knowledge and labor. They helped the 
Pilgrims to establish their colony, teach- 
ing them to hunt and grow crops, to dis- 
tinguish between eatable and poisonous 
wild fruits and plants. So remarkable was 
the result of their faithful labor on "such 
a towardly and pregnant soil" that the 
harvest gave way to the idea of Thanks- 
giving (as proclaimed by Governor Will- 
iam Bradford in the summer of 1621). 
But this prosperity (the reason for 
Thanksgiving) made Americans hateful 
of "the bridge that crossed them." They

On Monday you greet me with these 
words, 

What a wonderful weekend here, 
On Saturday we guys went out 
And had a glass of beer. 

On Tuesday morn you tell me 
Of the best night of the year, 
When you and all the guys went out 
And had a glass of beer. 

By Wednesday the love of beer has 
grown. 

You proceed to bend my ear, 
To tell me what a thrill it is 
To drink a glass of beer. 

From Thursday morn 'til Friday night, 
How long it does appear 
Til you'll be able to go downttown 
And have your glass of beer. 

By Friday noon it won't be long. 
Your ecstasy is clear, 
For that very night you will go out 
And drink a glass of beer. 

How wonderful, how glorious, 
This habit you revere, 
Your treks downtown on weekends 
To have a glass of beer. 

Your conversation sparkles, 
All gather 'round to hear 
You tell of this exciting thing. 
You drank a glass of beer. 

As you praise this drink almighty, 
I wonder, "Should we cheer, 
Because at the hotel last night 
You drank a glass of beer?"

For Outstanding Player 



Dutchmen Prepare 
For Opening Game 




Dave Ranc (64) and Rich Basta (63) lead the way for Bob Mead (24) against Albright 



Dutch Flier 

by Larry Painter 

The score of the 1966 Albright-LVC game was disappointing to 
many people. The most disappointed, however, were the members of the 
football team. Every team looks forward to winning as the reward for 
the many hours of practice and preparation which is given by each mem- 
ber of the team from the coaches to the managers. When a team loses by 
such a dismal score as 24-0, the rewards for all the effort are very few. 

Many things could be said about this game, but since the outcome 
can not be changed, perhaps it is best not to speculate. Some things were 
evident, however that did influence the score. 

Failure to capitalize on scoring opportunities during the first half 
certainy helped to stymie the offensive effort of the Dutchmen. This was 
in evidence the first time Valley had possession of the ball. With 1st and 
10 on the Albright 13 yard line, extreme pressure on the passing efforts 
of freshman Q-back Taki Bobotas by the Albright forward wall, forced the 
Dutchmen into a 4th and 30 situation. In the second half poor field posi- 
tion reduced the scoring opportunities to even fewer chances. 

Failure to hold the Lions on 3rd and long yardage also contributed to 
some degree. The Valley defensive team, led by line backers Dan Cham- 
bers and Jack Howie consistently held fine running backs such as John 
Zimmerman and Steve George to small gains on 1st and 2nd downs. 
Albright's ability to get the big gain on 3rd down overcame the fine efforts 
shown on the first two downs. 

Many fine individual efforts on the part of Valley players were 
evident, throughout the game, but these are not what always determine 
the final score — especially when such a rivalry as Albright vs. LVC exists. 
Anything can happen in such a game, as was evidenced in 1963 when the 
Dutchmen were outplayed in all statistical categories except the score. In 
1966 Valley lost. 



After the Homecoming game on No- 
vember 5, Kappa Lambda Sigma present- 
ed Larry Painter its annual Outstanding 
Senior Player Award. The brothers would 
like to congratulate Larry Painter for 
four outstanding years on the football 
team.

THANKSGIVING 

(Continued from Page 2) 

fought the Indians and drove them out, 
those that escaped massacre. 

Again, the slave-ships came in with 
loads of Africans whose fate was consign- 
ed to labor on the plantations paid with 
whip lashes. While the slavemen toiled 
hard under the heat of the sun, slave-wo- 
men were being discovered as vehicles for 
the start of an American mulatto colony, 
the result of which gave way to the earli- 
est American divorce cases! 

If America is proud of its wealth and 
plenty today, due credit must be given to 
the Indians who gave it knowledge of the 
soil, and the African slaves who built the 
foundations of its economic power. Par- 
adoxically though, both Indians and 
Americans of African descent have never 
reaped the benefits of America's econ- 
omic power. 

So while words and phrases such as 
"Thanksgiving," "In God We Trust," etc., 
are being used to proclaim the necessity 
to "bite the hand that feeds," and the 
Almightyness of the dollar, the meaning 
of Thanksgiving has shifted from its 
original significance to just a day set aside 
each year for eating turkey and cran- 
berry sauce. I daresay this is a tragic con- 
sequence of God's goodness to America, 
a consequence that robs America of 
moral splendor to the extent that the re- 
sults will be more tragic still as long as 
she continues to evoke a reciprocal tragic 
reaction from her most abject victims — 
the Indians and the "Negroes." 

The world has witnessed, in recent 
decades, the perils of unrestrained nat- 
ionalism made the vehicle of totalitarian 
dictatorships. America's history, yea that 
also of European liberalism, ought to re- 
mind us that the loyalties and emotional 
responses called for by a people need not 
necessarily lend themselves to exploita- 
tion in this fashion. Rather, they can be 
the basis of a humanitarian order within 
which different peoples cooperate with 
and understand, but do not oppress, one 
another. The development of such an 
order may be far away, but a fuller un- 
derstanding of the meaning of Thanks- 
giving brings it yet nearer to heart. So 
while you partake of this year's feast of 
'turkey and cranberry sauce,' I pray you 
keep uppermost in your minds that patriot 
dream that saw beyond the years alabaster 
cities undimmed by human tears. For it 
is only by coming to terms with that 
image, and making peace with your con- 
science, that God will shed his grace on 
you, crown your good with brotherhood, 
your success with nobleness, and make 
your every grain divine.

The important thing about a name is 



With the close of the football season, 
Lebanon Valley College is preparing to 
challenge other Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence teams for the hardwood champion- 
ship. This year's Flying Dutchman varsity 
basketball team will be young, fast and 
small. While only four of last year's up- 
perclassmen will return, valuable help is 
available from a very successful freshman 
team. ••■■»;'"> ; • ..- 

Co-captains Bromley Billmeyer and 
Patrick Simpson will be the forecourt 
stalwarts. Due to a lack of height this 
year, the emphasis will be on the con- 
trolled fast break using three guards to 
trigger the offense. Two of these guard 
spots will probably be taken by Bob 
Atkinson (sophomore, 6'0") and the 
quarterback of last year's freshman team, 
Jerry Stauffer (sophomore, 5' 11"). 

The third guard position right now is 
open with several men fighting for it. 
The leading candidates for this spot are 
Jack Halliday (junior, (6'0"), Stu Miller 
(junior, 6'1"), Bill Moyer (sophomore, 
6'3"), and Harold Todd (sophomore, 
6'0"). Up front, Coach Bob McHenry 
expects the two co-captains Bromley Bill- 
meyer (junior, 6'2") and Pat Simpson 
(junior, 6'3") to be tough off the back- 
boards. 

The freshman class will also contribute 
some help to the varsity this year in the 
persons of John Newman (5' 10"), Bill 
Bucher (6'2"), Frank Kuhn (6'3"), and 
Erich Lenker (6'3'). These men will be 
the nucleus for Coach George Mayhof- 
fer's junior varsity team along with Bill 
Allen (6'2"), John Dottolo (5'8"), John 
Martancik (5'10") and transfer student 
Denny Snovel (sophomore, 6'4"). 

The Dutchmen are working hard to pre- 
pare for the opening game December 1 , at 
home against Dickinson. Coach Bob Mc- 
Henry and Coach George Mayhoffer 
agree that LVC will field a small, young 
and fast team this year and they also feel 
it will be a very interesting team to watch 
as they fight for the MAC Southern Di- 
vision crown. 



the impression it makes in the minds of 
others and the reactions which it invokes 
through the law of association of ideas. 
On the contrary, the dominant thing 
about the rose is its smell: it is the im- 
pact which the smell makes upon the 
nervous system that makes us appreciate 
the rose or not. America has done so 
much for the world — especially fin- 
ancially — but is constantly being hated. 
Why? Of course every American has the 
answer: Don't allow yourself to live long 
enough in your own stench that you don't 
smell it anymore. 

Unfortunately, for America, most of 
the countries she helps still operate within 
a "moral" rather than a "technical" order. 
And since morality involves, if I may 
quote Robert Redfield, "the sense of 
religious seriousness and obligation that 
strengthens men," it is almost impossible 
for a technical order to impinge on such 
morality by assuming that people are 
"things" and should be bound by things. 
Consequently, it has become the fashion 
to use America as a means to an end; an 
attitude though uncalled for, is strangely 



Harriers Finish Season 
With Loss To Dickinson 

Homecoming day brought a much 
needed cross-country victory to LVC. 
Junior Dick Williams led the field to an 
18-44 victory over Albright with his con- 
sistently fine performance. The following 
Wednesday the LVC harriers were defeat- 
ed by a much improved Ursinus College 
team 22-36. Dick Williams again took 
first place sewing up the first position in 
the last 30 yards of the race. Valley's 
team, weakened through injuries and ill- 
ness during the race, was unable to break 
up the strong field of Ursinus runners. 
Over all, the team's performance was be- 
low expectation. 

Saturday at Dickinson the LVC team 
was again defeated 22-36. The opposi- 
tion presented a well clustered group of 
runners who outran Valley's middle 
placed runners. Despite the defeat a 
number of LV runners gave a fine effort 
with Dick Williams, Jim Davis, and An- 
thony Nitka taking the first three LVC 
places, Dick being first overall. 

The following day seven Valley run- 
ners competed in the Harrisburg AAU 
10,000 meter runs. They were: Dick Will- 
iams, Jim Davis, Terry Nitka, Paul Mur- 
phy, Tom Micka, Agu Laane, and Mike 
Burns. The field consisted of some of 
the finest cross country runners in this 
area and the Philadelphia area. Dick 
Williams finished 17th and received a 
medal in the open division. 

The team's record this season was 3-8 
owing greatly to an inexperienced team. 
Next year the team is looking forward to 
improving this record with a number of 
fine returning runners. Seniors Paul 
Murphy and J. Morgan Waring will sure- 
ly be missed. Sophomore Jim Davis who 
gave a consistent performance running 2nd 
man the entire season and freshman An- 
thony Nitka who has proved himself an 
able runner will be returning to fill key 
Valley positions. 

Friday, Nov. 18, the Valley team will 
send their top seven runners to Philadel- 
phia to compete in the MAC champion- 
ships. 




D. Williams, J. Davis after Ursinus meet 



enough an American invitation. But, de- 
spite all this, nations even yet unborn 
will still look up to America for moral 
and democratic leadership. America, 
therefore, is caught in the struggle that de- 
termines the future world order. An order 
in which all nations will realize the need 
for Thanksgiving in order that profit and 
pleasure will be the lot of mankind. 

I thank "whatever gods that be/' if I 
must borrow an expression from Henley's 
powerful and inspiring poem "Invictus," 
that in these formative years of the new 
world order, the idea of Thanksgiving 
has power enough to instruct mankind in 
the glorious, vital and important under- 
standing of self-respect (in which certain 
West African countries today, for ex- 
ample, are lacking). This, my friends, is 
the ancient and honorable teaching which 
has come down from the Sages of Egypt, 
in particular Amenomope, to convince 
mankind that men whom the truth has set 
free will be preserved by the truth. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Students Survey 

Week Of Action 

Homecoming, which started Monday night at 9, included many activ- 
ities never before connected with the old "LVC Day." Each night involved 
a new idea for promoting spirit from the traditional bonfire to a new look 
for the same old campus. 

The plans were pretty much as secret as far as the whole campus was 
concerned. Students were given only slight hints in addition to the time 
and place. Bonfires burned, the band played, frosh marched, and cars 
covered the quad in the midst of a downpour. 

Below are the opinions of students on the idea and success of Home- 
coming Week. 

John Linton: I would like to feel that 
I speak for the majority of the students 
on campus when I say that the Home- 
coming week was an excellent idea and, 
with some fiery exceptions, extremely 
successful. As for its conduction, I 
found it gratifying to see that several hun- 
dred students had the maturity and good 
sense to listen to those members of the 
governing bodies who found it necessary 
to exert authority, but more important is 
the fact that the authority was seldom 
needed. 

That is the story of this campus: do 
you realize that at five o'clock every Fri- 
day afternoon the administration and 
faculty leave campus, not to return until 
Monday morning? That leaves only two 
non-student authorities on campus; the 
dorm mothers of Green and Vickroy. 
Every other building is under the juris- 
diction of student counselors — men and 
women both. Without student support, 
this group of buildings wouldn't be a 
college; thus it is obvious that we stu- 
dents have a tremendous power to affect 
change; I think this was graphically 
demonstrated starting Monday night at 
9. 

More than enhancing the spirit of 
Homecoming, the week's activities pro- 
vided a unique student unity. Possibly 
the results of this unity will start some 
serious thinking about those weekends 
the administration never sees; every week- 
end here is aimed at the satisfaction of 
the intellectually barren and the socially 
immature. At the moment the most suc- 
cessful weekend activity would be a suit- 
case packing contest. 

Of course improvements have been 
made in such undertaking. And no, I 
don't feel that the administration placed 
too many restrictions on us. That's the 
point, friend, the administration isn't as 
closed minded as some would like to 
think. The only way to determine our 
limits is to ask through proper channels — 
such as FSC and the IFSC. Few try that, 
griping takes a lot less energy. If you 
wish to pay two thousand dollars a year 
to wallow in apathy then go ahead. A few 
of us wallowed for the last time several 
weeks ago. 

Allen Calderaro: The idea of a Home- 
coming week is very good, although it 
was only mildly successful. It lacked 



organization and publicity. Also there 
was a general lack of enthusiasm on the 
part of the upperclassmen which I, as a 
freshman, noticed. This is not to be an 
all inclusive statement, for some of the 
upperclassmen extended themselves, as at 
the bonfire. The lack of interest was 
probably due to the fact that this was 
the first time there was any such activity 
on campus. 

It was not conducted as well as it could 
have been as there was a general lack of 
organization. There should have been 
some type of student co-ordinating com- 
mittee. There was too much interference 
on the part of the administration, such 
as the removal of the spirit banners from 
Kreider Hall without the knowledge or 
permission of the students or counselors. 
There should be more freedom in the type 
of activities permitted. The restrictions 
that would be placed on activities should 
be decided by the student co-ordinating 
committee. Almost anything should be 
permitted as long as it is in "good taste." 

Sherrie Ptacek: Philo deserves a lot of 
credit for making Homecoming '66 un- 
forgettable. Not only did the fraternity 
create spirit, but succeeded in uniting the 
student body. The week's activities trans- 
formed LVC's atmosphere from a high 
school to a college level. 

Homecoming Week should be con- 
tinued. The activities could be controlled 
and improved if the week became a tradi- 
tion. The faculty could show its co- 
operation by scheduling tests, papers, and 
such before or after the week. After all, 
who wants to study when everyone else is 
out cheering? Also, all organizations, 
clubs, and campus groups should support 
the spirit. 

Homecoming '66 was great but Home- 
coming '67 can be even greater. Will it 
be? 

Bill Wheeler. The "week of spirit" pre- 
ceding LVC Day was an excellent idea; 
however, lack of student participation 
kept the purpose of the week an attempt 
rather than a success. I can't understand 
why more than a small minority of stu- 
dents participated in the activities of 
spirit week. Everyone is constantly com- 
plaining about the lack of excitement on 
campus and surrounding areas, so why 



didn't the entire student body take spirit 
week as a fine time to blow a little steam? 

The people who organized the nightly 
activities maybe didn't advertise enough 
or make each event sound like an event 
you wouldn't want to miss; however, this 
is our college and with a little initiative 
and motivation, we could have made spirit 
week a complete success. 

Restrictions set up by the administra- 
tion only kept the idea of the week and 
the meaning of spirit in good taste. It's 
easy to blame the administration for a 
mediocre spirit week, but each one of you 
look back and see if you did all you 
could to instill spirit on the LVC campus 
during spirit week. 

Barb Ankrum: "I feel the Homecom- 
ing activities were a good idea, as well as 
a success. More spirit was shown during 
this Homecoming period than during any 
time since I have been a student here. 

The students that planned and carried 
out the activities are to be commended. 
They are the ones that sparked the spirit 
movement and brought action to LVC. 
Although the events could have been bet- 
ter attended, I hope that this will not be 
cause for discontinuation of them in fu- 
ture years. It will take time for spirit to 
grow. 

Congratulations go to the freshmen for 
their spirit in building the second bon- 
fire and their interest in the activities. 
President Miller showed his support by 
appearing at the pep rally when condi- 
tions prevented the students from going 
to him. 

I do not feel that any unjust restric- 
tions were placed upon us by the admin- 
istration. In fact, I feel the administra- 
tion encouraged enthusiasm . 

Some feel that several activities got out 
of hand, but it must be remembered that 
no irrepairable damage was done, and 
after all this is a college campus." 

Jack Kauffman: "Basically, it was a 
good idea, but most of the students did 
not seem too spirited at the rallies or at 
the game. I think this type of spirit pro- 
gram should be continued in the future, 
though. Perhaps more students in the 
future will try to turn Homecoming into 
a really big weekend. 

The weekend was well conducted. 
There aren't too many things which could 
have been conducted differently. There 
was one case of juvenile destruction, but 
nothing can really be done about this 
except to appeal to the student's maturity. 

The only improvement I could see 
would be to get more students to actively 
participate who could think up and set 
up more activities. 

What restrictions would the students 
like relaxed by the administration? 
Would they like to burn down the town? 
The administration really can't change 
that much of anything to allow the stu- 
dents to do more. 

It is ridiculous to say anything should 
be permitted in the name of "spirit." We 
face the reality that perhaps some stu- 
dents would consider white-washing the 
Chapel. 

All in all the week wasn't bad, but 
it could be improved by each individual 
student's trying to do more.

What's Right ♦ ♦ . 
What's Wrong 

Lebanon Daily News 

Nov. 5— THE NATIVES are restless 
these days at Lebanon Valley College. 

For an explanation all you have to do 
is look at the college's football schedule. 

Today, the Flying Dutchmen clash with 
their traditional rivals from Reading, Al- 
bright College. 

And all week long, things have been 
happening on and off campus at Ann- 
ville. 

The rumors have been flying but no 
hard facts are available. It seems that even 
the girls have been backing their team 
with signs attached to appropriate gar- 
ments saying "Bust Albright" and "Beat 
the Pants Off Albright." 

Then some mean so-and-so set fire 
prematurely to the pile of combustible 
material that was to have been the pep 
rally bonfire. Matter of fact, they put 
the torch to it one night before the rally, 
and the fire department was called out. 

There were loud explosions on campus 
which first were identified as gunshots, 
but later were described as firecrackers. 

It's all been in the best tradition of 
college life and it would be a good thing 
if the authorities would stop getting ex- 
cited about it. 

It's a lot better than burning draft 
cards.

Anthony Wallace 
Delivers Series 
On Anthropology 

The department of sociology and the Lebanon Valley College chap- 
ter (Pennsylvania Nu) of Pi Gamma Mu, the national social science honor 
society, will sponsor a series of lectures by Dr. Anthony F. C. Wallace, 
professor of anthropology and chairman of the department of anthro- 
pology, University of Pennsylvania, on December 8 and 9. The lectureship 
has been designated a Centennial Event. 

Dr. Wallace will discuss the nature of anthropology and the work of 
an anthropologist in his lecture at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 8, 
entitled "What is Anthropology?" In two lectures on Friday, December 9, 
at 1 1 a.m. and I p.m. Professor Wallace will speak on "The New Religion 
of Handsome Lake, the Seneca Prophet," as a problem in the explanation 
of an historical event in anthropological terms. All lectures will be pre- 
sented in the lecture hall of the college chapel. 
Professor Wallace entered the armed 



services in World War II following two 
years of study at Lebanon Valley College. 
After the war he resumed his education at 
the University of Pennsylvania where he 
received his B.A. in history in 1947 and 
his M.A. and Ph.D. in anthropology in 
1949 and 1950 respectively. 

After two years of teaching at Bryn 
Mawr College, Dr. Wallace was named 
instructor in sociology at the University 
of Pennsylvania in 1950. He became Re- 
search Assistant Professor of Anthro- 
pology in 1952, Visiting Associate Pro- 
fessor of Anthropology in 1955, and Pro- 
fessor and Chairman of the Department 
of Anthropology in 1961. Currently he is 
also serving as a Medical Research Scient- 
ist at the Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric 
Institute. The recipient of several fellow- 
ships and research grants, Dr. Wallace has 
done extensive field work among the Sen- 
eca and Tuscarora Indians. 

Professor Wallace has achieved recog- 
nition as author and editor. His publica- 
tions since 1947 include sixty-seven titles 
of books and articles in professional jour- 
nals. He has also contributed to publica- 
tions of the Pennsylvania Department of 
Public Instruction and United States gov- 
ernment bureaus. An exhibit of his works 
will be arranged in the college library. 

Professor Wallace has appeared as guest 
lecturer at a dozen leading colleges and 
universities. His services as consultant are 
also in demand by research foundations, 
professional organizations, and govern- 
mental agencies and committees on the 
local, state, and national level.

Grant To Aid Club 
In Acoustics Study 

The physics club has received a research 
grant for the study of a project in acous- 
tics. The title of the experiment is "The 
dependence of certain acoustical properties 
upon various physical parameters of a 
sonometer." 

The project itself will analyze the 
musical sounds produced by an instru- 
ment the club will construct. This in- 
strument will be similar to a guitar, ex- 
cept that its physical dimensions will be 
variable at will. It is hoped that eventual 
study of guitars may result from the pro- 
ject. 

The grant itself is for $50, but the 
honor of receiving such a grant is more 
Properly emphasized than the actual cash 
v alue. Application for the grant involved 
the writing and researching of a six page 
Proposal whose form is the same as pro- 
fessional research grants (i.e for govern- 
ment or industrial research grants). 

Members of the proposal committee 
w ere John Heffner, Carl Horning, Eugene 
Katzman, Harry Capper, and Thomas 
fiross.

SAi- Sinfonia Give 
Broadway Musical 

Sinfonia and SAI are now putting the final touches on their produc- 
tion of the Anthony Newley-Leslie Bricusse musical "The Roar of the 
Greasepaint — The Smell of the Crowd." To be given tomorrow and 
Saturday evenings at 8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall, the musical is the third 
which the two musical fraternities have presented. As in the past, 
"Greasepaint" is being produced entirely by students. Larry Bachtell and 
Bill Miller are directing the show and conducting the orchestra, respect- 
ively. The choreography is being done by Jamie Murphy, and Lynda 
Senter is serving as production co-ordinator. 
an unusual assortment 



The musical is 
of slapstick, wit, and drama. It has been 
termed "a sort of Laurel and Hardy set 
to music." The lead roles are being tak- 
en by Chuck Curley as Sir and Gary 
Miller as Cocky. Gretchen Long will 
portray the Kid, Suzy Chase the Girl, 
Denny Brown the Negro, and Dave 
Keehn the Bully. The singing and danc- 
ing Urchins are Jamie Murphy, Carole 
Cameron, Rachel Gibble, Paula Ward, 
Ruth Long, Stephanie Fauber, Marcia 
Gehris, Pat Rohrbaugh, and Anna 
Schwartz. 

All seats for both performances will 
be reserved. Tickets are available from 
any Sinfonia or SAI member, in the din- 
ing hall, or at the box office on the 
nights of the performances. 



LVC Lists Policy 
About Class Cuts 

The following is from a memorandum 
to the faculty concerning the class atend- 
ance policy which has been approved by 
the Academic Affairs Committee, to be 
made effective with the second semester 
of the current academic year: 

Each student is held responsible for 
knowing and meeting all the requirements 
for each course, including regular class 
attendance. Because of differences in var- 
ious disciplines, specific regulations gov- 
erning class attendance are set by each 
department, approved by the Dean of the 
College, and administered by the instruc- 
tor. 

At the opening of each course the in- 
structor will clearly inform the students 
of the regulations on class attendance. 
Violations of class attendance regulations 
will make the student liable to being drop- 
ped from the course with a failing grade, 
upon the recommendation of the instruc- 
tor and with the approval of the Dean of 
the College. 

Excused absences are granted by the 
Registrar's office only for bona fide med- 
ical and compelling personal reasons, or 
for participation in official functions of 
the College. Students on academic pro- 
bation are permitted only excused abs- 
ences. 

Compelling personal reasons include 
death in the family, or serious illness in 
the family, and not matters as car break- 
downs, snow or similar circumstances. 



World Watcher 

China: China's overall relief pattern 
limits economic and cultural integration 
of the individual regions. Access from 
one major region to another is not easy. 
This country's transportation pattern is 
one of its greatest handicaps to any plans 
for industrialization. 

Washington, D.C.: The Department of 
State Film Library has available on free 
loan (to special audiences) a new docu- 
mentary film entitled "In Search of 
Peace." 

This film, 29 minutes showing time, is 
an official statement of the basic goals 
of U.S. foreign policy, and based on spe- 
cial interviews with Secretary of State 
Dean Rusk, Walter Rostow, and other 
principal U.S. foreign relations officials. 

The Hague: It is understood that the 
guests that have been invited to the Janu- 
ary (1967) wedding of Princess Margriet 
to Pieter Van Vollenhoven have been 
asked to bring their skates with them in 
order that they may be able to participate 
in an ice-skating party. 

India: At a recent conference in New 
Delhi, India, Yugoslav and U.A.R. lead- 
ers called for a halt in the bombing of 
North Vietnam. 

Liberia/Sierra Leone: A direct tele- 
phone line was recently installed between 
Liberia and Sierra Leone (in West Africa). 
The inauguration ceremony of this link 
took place on a cold breezy day. African 
observers believe the setting was oppor- 
tune because the telephone link was not 
meant to be a "hot-line"! 

United Nations, N. Y.: U. Thartt, Sec- 
retary-General of the United Nations was 
unanimously re-elected to another term of 
office last week. 

Israel/Syria: The dispute between Israel 
and Syria has been mounting steadily. The 
Security Council of the United Nations 
is being overtaxed with finding a solution 
to the dispute. 

Rhodesia: British Prime Minister, Har- 
old Wilson and Ian Smith, Prime Minister 
of the rebel Rhodesian government, dead- 
locked last weekend on the question of a 
possible African majority government for 
Rhodesia. 

Afro-Asian nations, and Britain, have 
been suggesting very rigid military and 
economic sanctions be imposed by United 
Nations mandate.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 8, 1966 



Change, No. 2 

Ideas and the ability to communicate them effectively are the most 
important tools man has in his possession. But, as ideas are transmitted 
over the years, they begin to lose the meaning they had when first con- 
ceived, and may even end up serving some purpose which they were never 
intended to serve. 

And so it is, perhaps, with the idea of compulsory chapel attendance 
for the students (with five cuts permitted per semester). . . 

Over the years, our required chapel service programs have been 
marked by dry and uninteresting speakers from beyond our halls of ivy 
whose intended purpose has been to present a topic that would be "an 
integral part of a liberal education for every college student." With the 
possible exception of a handful of people who have something to say and 
attempt to adequately express themselves, the students attending chapel 
services are treated week in and week out to people who have nothing to 
say, but require thirty minutes in which to say it, or most tragic of all, 
people who have something to say but cannot treat their topic adequately 
in thirty minutes. 

Of course, the time period is just right for these services. Thirty 
minutes is actually twenty-nine minutes too much for the typical, run-of- 
the-mill speaker, but thirty minutes for men like Heilbroner and Bertocci 
(substitute your own favorites) is defeating the purpose for which the 
chapel service program was originally intended. The men who have some- 
thing to offer to enrich each student's education are hampered by having to 
go too quickly over the topics they do have time to present. 

Also, it may well be that the average speaker is less than interesting, 
but the students succeed in adding insult to injury by being so rude as to 
talk, write letters, do homework, or sleep while the man is speaking. 

There is no doubt that a liberal education is necessary for anyone 
who would attempt to call himself educated. And, unfortunately, one of 
the more successful ways to attempt to liberally educate someone is to 
require him to take certain courses in addition to those of his major, while 
clinging to the hope that some, if not all the knowledge he has assimi- 
lated from various disciplines over the years will help to make him a well- 
rounded, thinking individual. 

It usually takes at least one semester for a professor to be able to 

make the course he is teaching "an integral part of a liberal education for 

every college student." However, students are required to attend a thirty 

minute recitation from a speaker who spends twenty-five minutes warming 

up to his topic, and masterfully deals with it in its entirety in the remaining 

five. By some stretch of the imagination, this too is called "an integral 

part of a liberal education for every college student." 

* * * 

However, criticism is never warranted unless it humbly offers some 
alternatives to the status quo. Therefore. . . 

Is the chapel service program actually adhering to the idea of being 
"an integral part of a liberal education for every college student"? If the 
previous statements are correct, the answer can only be no. 

Of the many possible alternatives, here are two. Either the college 
chapel service must be remodeled to fit once again the original idea, or 
the program must be discontinued. The latter of the two proposed solu- 
tions is not necessarily the most advisable. 

The program, when blessed with effective speakers, can be truly 
rewarding. Given enough time, these men could certainly fulfill the 
original intent of the idea, and thus provide a very beneficial addition to 
the student's education. 

However, with the scheduling problems we now have, any increase in 
the length of the chapel service might well force the student with a 12 and 
1 o'clock class to eat the eraser of his pencil instead of lunch (for better or 
for worse). It might also serve to further convince the registrar that Walden 
Pond might really be a nice place to live after all. 

Other church-supported colleges have discontinued their required 
chapel programs without being completely consumed by paganism. Dick- 
inson College (Methodist supported) has done this, and it is rumored the 
chaplain himself suggested the change. 

If the chapel service program is worth saving, it is worth the effort to 
do something about it now. It seems unfair to dangle the carrot of edu- 
cation before the student and never allow him to take a bite. — P.P.

To the Editor: 

It is hoped that this letter will aid 
in clarifying some of the misunderstand- 
ing concerning the use of the Fellowship 
Room in the Chapel. This area is not an 
SCA or DTC room and it is improper to 
refer to it as such. The room is available 
to various campus groups, scheduled by 
both the Chaplain and the Registrar. 

It is felt that the present lounges serve 
the needs of the campus adequately. This 
room was not included in the Chapel 
plans to serve as an open lounge. We 
hope that the students will come to rec- 
ognize it as the Fellowship Room and to 
understand that no organization has a 
monopoly on its use.

To the Editor: 

Last Friday the college was treated to 
an extremely entertaining program spon- 
sored by Delphian-Kalo. All the pre- 
sentations in ICCP were well done and 
showed a great deal of hard work. Un- 
fortunately the conduct of some of the 
audience was not what one would expect 
of college students. 

Sitting in the balcony, one was con- 
stantly confronted with the ceaseless jok- 
ing and laughter of individulas who were 
apparently not content to even try to ap- 
preciate what was before them on the 
stage, and therefore proceeded to invent 
their own form of "entertainment," on a 
very juvenile level. 

The shouting of wise cracks, the at- 
tempted mock outs of some acts and the 
general conduct of those individuals only 
reflects their lack of maturity. Perhaps at 
future programs like ICCP baby cribs 
should be installed, and pacifiers put in 
those juveniles' mouths to keep them 
quiet. The acts did not grovel, fellas . 
you did.

CantpuA Scene 

It is comforting to know that we must 
pay $40 per credit to audit a course even 
though we don't get any credit for this on 
our permanent record. 

It certainly is nice to see the great pains 
the maintenance department goes to to 
care for the grass on campus. Those 
tastefully designed plank-walks are still up 
in front of the gym, near Engle Hall, and 
at the side of the administration building 
protecting the dead grass (or are they 
protecting the termites?). 

Happiness is the instructor not noticing 
your absence when you leave early for 
Christmas vacation. 



Have you noticed how quiet the sewer- 
diggers have been? It is rumored that they 
are waiting until semester exams begin 
before they begin.

Cleaning House 

by Ade Hedd 

In the last issue of La Vie Collegienne, I noted in my article — . 
"Thanksgiving" — that certain West African countries are lacking in self- 
respect. Certain morons became worried about this and began to wonder 
whether I am now anti-African and planning to give up my African na- 
tionality and become American. Interesting thought! 

I have brought this up to show how narrow-minded and insecure 
people are. According to the reasoning of these individuals, there is the 
possibility that after I found fault with America (after their suggestion that 
I become an American citizen), I will have to take up citizenships in other 
countries until there is no wrong in the world. How sick and pathetic can 
people really be? 

My view of the world (and, indeed, of humanity) is not the selfish 
kind. I see people as just PEOPLE; I see nations as just a FAMILY in a 
world order. Unfortunately, most of us are only concerned about the so- 
called "nice" things we enjoy in life, forgetting that the "un-nice" things 
overpower the "nice" things. We live our lives under dark, dangerous 
clouds but pretend these dangers are never present. Some people are 
content to fool themselves, but other are certainly not. I belong to the latter 
category. 

Whatever some people may think I am: fault-finder, moralist, or what 

they will, I believe, and will always, that to question life constantly and 

wisely is to live a better and more contented life. 

♦ * ♦ 

The topic I intend to discuss in this issue concerns Africa: its failings 
— its irresponsible attitude toward development. Homer and Herodotus 
pointed out in their writings that they saw Africans as "blameless Ethio- 
pians (the name "Ethiopian" was one of the original names — Aethiops and 
Afer — used to designate Africans) whom the gods selected as a people fit 
to be lifted to the social level of the Olympian divinities." Luckily these 
two men have not lived to see their hopes tarnished by ill-directed African 
power machineries born of ignorance, greed and selfishness. Apparently, 
Africa finds itself today, on a stage set by the spirit of colonialism for 
acting out the gyroscope of colonial conditioning. 

Self-determination: 



African leaders have to be aware of the 
fact that we cannot afford, today, to live 
in the trajectory of closed nationalism. 
The idea of self-determination which 
evoked the riots of hunger, poverty and 
destitution is essentially a revolution 
against foreign domination, the departure 
from which was, presumably, expected to 
lead to the disappearance of these evils 
that have beset us for a century and a 
half. This messianic movement of Africa 
is nothing but sociological manifestations 
of this collective feeling of revolt against 
the presence, at once material and ideo- 
logical, of the "foreigner." 

Agreeably, colonial tutelage was, at 
least in principle if not in all its acts, 
legitimate in certain aspects of African 
development. This does not exclude the 
fact, though, that in other areas it was 
transformed into oppression engendering 
frustration. This frustration, it is assumed, 
is what impels the people of Africa today, 
long silent, to exercise their right to self- 
determination. As I see it, the whole ques- 
tion involving such determinism is wheth- 
er the enjoyment of this "right" — which 
no one disputes any longer — will be cor- 
relative to the effective independence and 
veritable advantage of these young Afri- 
can states. But, alas, the boot is on the 
other leg. African political leaders (and 
West Africa takes the cake) have seen

their positions as the "powers of the 
purse." They have failed to remind them- 
selves of the respect and duty they owe to 
the masses of poor Africans and the Con- 
tinent at large. They do not seem to know 
that African survival (like any other) does 
not depend on brilliance, but rather on its 
human content and capacity for human 
progress. It is indeed unfortunate that 
history has not taught them as yet that 
civilizations have always perished because 
of their narrowness — physical or intel- 
lectual; in other words, from their failure 
to include the more numerous masses of 
men with whom they have been identified 
as partners in progress. 

Rather, they become greedy power- 
drunks, and silently-aggressive dictators. 
Their propensity for show of power, pres- 
tige and money assumes stupid and ridi- 
culous proportions; and then they com- 
plain about colonialism and its economic 
ill effects. Complain about what, when 
they are carbon copies of colonialist rule? 
Our educated upstarts, who lack academic 
sophistication but think they possess it, 
are constantly engaged in their self-praise 
for whatever college or university "de- 
grees" they have. They claim automatic 
superiority to the masses of Africans not 
even realizing that they rob these people 
of their prided 'selves'; nor can they see 
to what extent they themselves suffer 
from an "inferiority complex." Hardly do 
they think about what they can do for 
Africa but how they can show off to the 
'lessers' by quoting Plato and Shakes- 
peare when they cannot, in fact, dis- 
tinguish between such quotations and the 
circumstances that evoked them. If this is 
not an indication of narrow-mindedness 
and psychological insecurity, I wonder 
what is. 

I am not suggesting for one moment, 
that no one has a right to be happy about 
his achievements. But when one spends 
his lifetime doing this, more sober-minded 
Africans begin to wonder when these 
happy degree-holders will grow up suf- 
ficiently to be able to think in terms of 
what they owe their motherland. 
Economic Strangulation: 

All the great revolutions from earliest 
centuries to date, present common char* 
acteristics. They all have, necessarily, ^ 
ideology inspired by Western humanism, 
emphasizing notions of liberty and the 
universality of man's fate. The problem 
is for the state to justify its claim that it 
legitimately embodies the nation; othef' 
wise, quarrels are multiplied and conflict

break out. This, we have seen, has been 
the fate of Nigeria, Ghana and Guinea 
(among others). 

It was the consciousness of economic 
inequality, also, that gave birth to African 
national sentiment, aligning it and Asia 
on the same battlefront for economic and 
political survival. If there has to be any 
real national existence, instead of sense- 
less pronouncements of "justice," "free- 
dom," "unity," etc., African nations will 
have to build a new enthusiasm strong 
enough to take the weight of self-de- 
termination for its peoples. 

Development is a continuous and de- 
termined process of growth attuned to 
human valorization. It is something dif- 
ferent from expansion, which is growth 
in power and can result from an outside 
will threatening either domestic economic 
balance or autonomy, or both at the same 
time. To start the process of development 
of Africa's economy (which is, in fact, re- 
tarded), the first objective must be to 
suppress structural obstacles that hamper 
development. We will need investments, 
poles of development, networks of trade — 
all of which are items that force us out of 
our "isolation" — to proceed to relations 
with more developed economies. 

But when pettiness and greed creep in 
to the extent that certain mediocre elites 
should undertake to stifle the budding 
economy of an African state or nation, 
then the ideas of responsibility, justice, 
freedom and progress are lost for Africa. 
What I mean, in fact, is that the mon- 
strous instances of greedy theft by some 
African leaders which tend to choke off 
even half-decent standards of living for 
the masses of people be abandoned. 

Africa, with all its wealth of resources, 
cannot afford to live on foreign aid for- 
ever. There is the possibility that the great 
economic powers will get to the point 
where they cannot help any more. This is 
possible more so within the growing com- 
plicated fabric of international politics. 
And what will Africa have to offer then? 
Private houses and huge (personal) bank 
accounts? I hope not! 
Unity: 

One of the greatest and most funda- 
mental concepts of democracy is UNITY. 
This has been the great cry all over Africa 
(since as far back as 1957). This cry 
though is altogether meaningless. Today, 
we witness the bloody battles in Nigeria 
born of tribal conflict. But Nigeria is not 
unique in this. The whole continent boils 
mad with tribalism. This consequently 
breeds selfishness. Selfishness and tribal- 
ism do not match justice and unity. There- 
fore, the idea of UNITY is senseless un- 
less conscious tribal differences are for- 
gotten. 

With all the faults America may have, 
it is one great example of political unity 
that Africa can copy if it must unite. If 
the oppressed people of Europe could 
achieve such unity away from their orig- 
inal homelands, the once oppressed people 
of Africa can, certainly, achieve unity on 
their own soil if they are determined to 
do so. Unfortunately, there are not many 
NEW WORLDS left for Africans to 
move away to to boost their attitude to- 
ward unity. In fact, the only possible 
New World today is the moon — and we 
will need money for our fares on Amer- 
ican and Russian spaceships! The money 
°f course we do not have. 

I, like many other Africans who are 



Intramural Scene 

Since the last issue of the paper, there 
has not been a change in the overall in- 
tramural standings. They are as follows: 

Knights — 17 points 

Kalo — 14 pts. 

Residents — 13 pts. 

Philo — 7 pts. 

Sinfonia — 6 pts. 

Frosh B— 1 pt. 

Bowling, ping-pong, and volleyball are 
now well underway, with badminton and 
wrestling starting soon or just beginning. 
Bowling so far shapes up as follows: 
Residents, 1st; Kalo, 2nd; Sinfonia, 3rd; 
Knights, 4th; Frosh A and Philo, tied; 
and Frosh B. This sport will last until 
the beginning of March. 

Ping-pong is progressing slowly with 
finalist mateial beginning to appear at 
the top of the play-off sheets. This sport 
should be completed in the near future if 
the participants will make the necessary 
efforts to see that their matches are play- 
ed or that they scratch their names from 
the sheets. 

Volleyball has been underway now for 
a few weeks. So far, Knights and Kalo 
are tied for first place with one loss 
apiece. The other teams' standings are 
as yet undiscernable, since many game 
results have not been posted. Make sure 
that a representative of your organiza- 
tion checks the sports schedules daily for 
any pertinent changes in them. 

Badminton schedules for singles and 
doubles have been posted and a date has 
been set for playing of the first round. 
Wrestling will take place December 12 
and 13, and will consist of ten weight 
classes. The weight classes are 123, 130, 
137, 145, 152, 160, 167, 177, 191, and 
Heavyweight. To determine the weight 
allowance, add 3 pounds to the class 
weight for the first day and 4 pounds 
for the second day. If you enter the 
123 pound class, your maximum weight 
the first day would be 126 pounds. Check 
the schedule for further information on 
weigh-in. The sign-up sheets for the sport 
are to be handed in to Coach Darlington. 



Freshmen Class Elects 
Rogers As President 

The Freshmen class of Lebanon Valley 
College has elected its officers. Freshmen 
men have also elected representatives to 
Men's Senate. 

The class officers are: president, Jon 
Rogers; vice president, Jerry Beardsley; 
secretary, Kongkun Hemmaplardh, elect- 
ed by write-in vote; treasurer, Greg Scott; 
and Faculty-Student Council representa- 
tive, Bobbie Harro. 

William Wheeler and Greg Scott have 
been elected to the Men's Senate by the 
freshmen men. 



honest to the cause of Africa, have great 
faith in our motherland. Africa has the 
capacity for advancement both politically 
and economically. But this can only hap- 
pen when our leaders have learned that 
not only is man's ability an index to his 
character, but that the image of success 
is achieved when the one and the many 
together strive for that state of human 
existence where the selfish ambitions of 
men will cease to enslave them. 



LVC To Meet Moravian 
In Opening Mat Contest 

Coach Jerry Petrofes' mat team, with 
a 6-5 record last year, is looking forward 
to hosting the Greyhounds from Mora- 
vian at 8 P.M. tonight. This will be the 
first meet for the LVC wrestlers and the 
opening of their 1966-67 season. Last year 
the Moravian Greyhounds beat the 
Dutchmen 21-15 in a closely-contested 
match. This year, as last year, the Grey- 
hounds will have Dave Mucha, twice 177 
pond MAC champion, 5th in the NCAA 
University division, and 2nd in the 
NCAA College division last year. The 
Greyhounds finished the 1965-66 season 
with a 4-7 record, and will be looking 
for a win over the Valley to start them 
off. 

The probable team line-up for the 
Valley will be: 

123 lbs. — Archie Laughead 
130 lbs. — Agu Laane 
137 lbs. — Sam Willman, Captain 
145 lbs. — Joe Hovetter 
152 lbs. — Kerry Althouse 
160 lbs. — Steve Barbaccia 
167 lbs. — Dave Ranc 
177 lbs. — Jack Howie 
Heavyweight — Ross Calvert 
Coach Petrofes says he is disappointed 
that certain people on the campus who 
have the ability to help the team are 
not willing to give of themselves in order 
to make the team a winning one. 

The coach and his wrestlers are ready 
to start the season tonight, and will be 
doing their best to bring Valley a win- 
ning season.

Dutch Flier 

by Mike Curley 

Lebanon Valley's varsity basketball team, under the guidance of 
Coach McHenry, opened the 1966-67 season with a very impressive 93-78 
victory over visiting Dickinson College last Thursday night. 

Led by co-captain Brom Billmeyer's 26 points, the team showed a 
well-balanced offensive attack with Harold Todd chipping in 20 points, 
Jerry Stauffer 16 points, and co-captain Pat Simpson 15 points. The LVC 
team only lost the ball once in the first half, and did well off the boards. 
Special mention should be made of Pat Simpson's fine defensive work on 
Dickinson's Ted Jursek, who had previously been averaging 30 points in 
scrimmages. "Simpy" held him to 7 poitns. 

On Saturday night, December 3, the team faced a strong Lycoming 
College squad, returning after a 13-1 conference record last year. Through- 
out the first half it was a see-saw battle, with Valley finally pulling ahead 
just before the half to exit with a 34-32 lead. During the second half, 
Lycoming switched from a man-to-man to a zone defense, and it proved 
to be too effective for the Valley to overcome. In an effort to outhustle 
Lycoming and close the score, the Dutchmen pressed too hard and the 
result was several lost balls and scores for Lycoming. The final was 
93-68, Lycoming. Brom Billmeyer again led the Dutchmen with 20 
points. 

The Junior Varsity, under Coach Mayhoffer, has won both of its 
games against Dickinson and Lycoming, and in very fine style. Erich 
Linker has been the top scorer, ably assisted by all the other squad mem- 
bers in what has been the start of what promises to be an excellent season 
for the JV's. 

The next home game is against Moravian, Saturday, December 10, 
Varsity 8:15, JV 6:30.

La Vie Inquires 

Vacation Bound? 

by Bobbie Gable 

Vacations pose problems for students whose homes are far from 
Annville and trips home involve something like 12 to 16 hours riding on a 
bus, or those who because of bus, train, or plane schedules must wait until 
evening to leave or must return early Sunday. These people are thrown 
out of college buildings at 4:00 on Wednesday or 5:00 on Friday and are 
locked out until 2:00 on Sunday. 

Many schools remain open for short vacations such as semester break 
or Thanksgiving providing at least a dorm to stay in and in some cases 
providing library and cafeteria service. 

Barb West: "Although I live only forty 
miles from the campus, I am well aware 
of some of the problems created by long 
distance travel and transportation sched- 
ule as the college closes for vacations. 

Because the student body is relatively 
small, there are really few students for 
whom travel home for the shorter vaca- 
tions is unrealistic. For this reason I don't 
feel that the entire college plant should 
remain in operation during short vaca- 
tions. For those students finding it neces- 
sary to stay, perhaps two dorms could re- 
rnain open! With regard to the longer 
vacations; the problem of leaving and re- 
turning from a great distance within a 
; vety: . shoirt time doesn't really present 
itself. i 

On the other hand, many students, my- 
self included, would appreciate later clos- 
ing and earlier opening of the dorm and 
library for both the longer and shorter 
■vacations. Perhaps the dorms and library 
could remain open for a day after va- 
cation begins and reopen a day before the 
end of vacation. This would give students, 
regardless of the distance of their homes 
from the campus, an opportunity to plan 
for leaving and returning to school with 
some degree of flexibility. 

Helaine Hopkins: "One partial solution 
to the problem of students who must 
leave late and return early would be to 
have Carnegie Lounge and the Snack Bar 
open. One Of the biggest problems of early 
returners (besides being locked out in the 
cold) is the utter impossibility of getting 
anything to eat in Annville on Sundays. 

This is not so big an order as having 
dorms open, and it's usually easier to push 
changes slowly, but I do think there would 
be demand for at least two of the small 
dorms to be kept open for the few who 
live far away and there is no reason why 
the girls would need a dorm mother since 
they already get along without them; or 
that they could take care of their own 
cooking etc., although it would be nice to 
have the Snack Bar and Carnegie open as 
gathering places, and most schools do keep 
their libraries open even when everything 
else is closed." 

Gary D. Frederick: "I live in an up- 
state New York community and the ex- 
pense and short vacation time make going 
home on vacations such as Thanksgiving a 
waste and impractical. Although possibil- 
ities do exist to visit nearby areas, this also 
runs into expense. 

One reason I came to LV was to learn 
to be indepedent and responsible away 
from home. However, since the school 
closes entirely over vacations, I either 
have to go home or travel instead of some- 
times remaining here. I would think the 
men's dorms could remain open, but this 
presents a problem for the women's dorms. 

I can see how keeping the dining hall, 
library, etc. open would be an inconven- 
ience to the people who are responsible. 
But may I ask how other schools do keep 
them open? If the facilities were to remain 
open, however, I'm not sure as to whether 
or not a very large percentage of the 
students would take advantage. I know I 
would not stay here on all short vacations, 
but I would greatly appreciate, if nothing 
else a late closing and early opening for 
the dorms. 

There are, of course, those students 
who would like to do some extra research 
and stay on campus during vacations. 
Even though these students are a small 
minority, I believe they should be given 
access to facilities to do this study and 
research. They have paid to study and do 
research here; shouldn't they be permitted 
to do so?" 

Donna Simmers: "When one lives so 
far from Annville that it requires a 
whole day to travel back and forth, the 



short vacation becomes an inconvenience 
rather than a vacation. One has to obtain 
plane reservations weeks in advance, or 
else take a bus and use a day of the va- 
cation to travel. Thus I think that allow- 
ing the dorms to remain open would be a 
great service for the students who feel 
because of distance and travel time that 
it is not worth the time and money spent 
to go home. Also any student who would 
like to do term work or work in the col- 
lege laboratories would benefit by this 
time on campus. 

I think, that by asking students to put 
in a request to stay on campus, the col- 
lege could then determine the amount of 
space required and leave dorms open 
according to the number of requests. 

There should be one building open a 
little later when we leave for vacations. 
No matter how close a person may live, 
it may not always be convenient for 
someone to pick him up by the time the 
dorms close. 

I think arrangements of the type men- 
tioned would be used enough to be worth- 
while." 

Linda Eicher: "As yet I have not en- 
countered this transportaiton problem 
personally, but I do know it exists for 
many students. Since I live in central 
New Jersey, I have always been able to 
find a ride with someone going to either 
Philadelphia or North Jersey. But this 
is travel via private transportation, not 
an attempt to meet bus and train sched- 
ules. Also, what kind of vacation would 
Thanksgiving be riding on a train for 
half a day? 

The one example I can recall of LVC's 
remaining open over a vacation was dur 
ing the snow vacation last year. Those 
students who returned before or during 
the storm were temporarily housed in the 
largest dormitories, and the dining hall 
prepared meals on a smaller scale. Was 
this arrangement so inconvenient to ev- 
eryone concerned? There was no daily 
cleaning done in the dorms and the stu 
dents bussed their own tables after meals, 
but we didn't consider it unbearably diffi 
cult to help to this extent. Why not try 
a similar arrangement for scheduled vaca 
tions? 

As for anyone's staying, how can you 
tell until it's tried? If the opportunity 
is offered, maybe there would be enough 
people who want to stay to make it 
worth while. 




Community Service 
To Feature Chorus 

The Thirteenth Annual Community 
Christmas Service will be presented by 
the College Chorus on December 13, at 
8 p.m. in the Chapel. Arrangements of 
familiar Christmas carols and other ap 
propriate selections will be sung by the 
Chorus under the direction of Kenneth 
Landis. Preceeding the program, a brass 
ensemble will present a series of carols. 

Dr. James Bemesderfer will read Scrip- 
ture passages with other pastors of the 
community participating in the service. 
The organist for the occasion will be 
William Miller. 



Men's intramural volleyball continues contest for the Supremacy Trophy. 



Students To Take 
Scholarship Exams 

The thirty-third annual competitive 
scholarship examinations will be held on 
Saturday, December 10, on the campus. 

The two hundred students expected to 
attend will be secondary school seniors 
who rank in the upper quarter of their 
classes. They will compete for three full- 
tuition and eight half-tuition scholarships 
extending through their first two years of 
college. 

The contestants will take tests in the 
morning and afternoon, and will be in- 
terviewed by heads of the departments 
in which they are interested. During this 
time, their parents will be guests at a 
faculty panel. 

The members of the panel will be Dr. 
Anna D. Faber, Mr. Alex J. Fehr, Mrs. 
June E. Herr, and Dr. Jacob L. Rhodes. 
They will speak for the Humanities, the 
Social Sciences, Education, and the Scien- 
ces, respectively. 



The Lebanon Valley College library 
is now open longer hours through the 
week and weekends. Evening hours 
will now extend to 10:30 pm Monday 
through Friday. Wednesday afternoons 
the library will close at 4 pm. Sunday 
evening hours, 7-10:30, have been add- 
ed to the former weekend hours. 



Chapel Calendar Includes 
Campus Chest Program 

The Rev. Sheridan Watson Bell will be 
the chapel speaker December 13. Rev. 
Bell, pastor of Grace Methodist Church, 
Harrisburg, was the Religious Emphasis 
Week speaker at Lebanon Valley in 
March 1957. He is a graduate of Ohio 
Wesleyan University, Yale Divinity 
School and the University of West Vir- 
ginia. He has served previous pastorates 
in Columbus and Delaware, Ohio, and 
during World War II was a chaplain in 
the United States Navy. 

The annual Campus Chest Program 
will beheld on January 3. Speaking will 
be Thomas Haskin Magid. Mr. Magid 
attended the William Penn Charter School 
where he was very active in debating and 
literary societies. He spent the second 
half of his junior year as an exchange 
student under the auspices of the Amer 
ican Friend Service Committee. He also 
did extensive travelling in France, Italy, 
England, and Spain. 

Mr. Magid later entered Bucknell 
University where he has participated in 
debating, sports, and international affairs. 
This summer he was a member of the 
French-West African Youth Delegation, 
which made him familiar with West Afri 
can economics. 

Majoring in economics, Mr. Magid 
hopes to receive a Masters in Finance, 
and perhaps enter law school. During the 
present semester, he is studying at the 
Wharton School of Business of the Uni 
versity of Pennsylvania, and will return 
to Bucknell next semester. 

A familiar figure will fill the pulpit 
January 10. The Rev. Mark J. Hostetter, 
former pastor of the Annville EUB 
church, will speak. Rev. Hostetter, pastor 
of St. Paul's EUB church in Elizabeth 
town, is a graduate of LVC, United Theo- 
logical Seminary, and Yale Divinity 
School. He served previous pastorates in 
Alpha, Ohio; Kansas City, Missouri; 
Reading and Lincoln Park before coming 
to the Annville church, where he served 
from 1957-1966. 



University Studies 
Investigate Value 
Of Grade Average 

(ACP) — College students around the 
nation are constantly worrying about their 
grade point averages, yet the significance 
of the GPA seems to be questioned more 
all the time, says the Western Herald, 
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, 
Michigan. The most recent questions were 
raised by two studies that show no direct 
relationship between the college grade 
point average and professional success. 

The two studies were conducted among 
fellowship winners among Columbia Uni 
versity graduates and among a group of 
physicians. The first showed that students 
who had graduated with honors, won 
scholastic medals or were elected to Phi 
Beta Kappa were more likely to be found 
in the "lower professional levels" than 
students who had not distinguished them- 
selves in such ways. The second showed 
no such tendency, but merely found 
there was no connection between grade 
point averages in medical school and the 
physician's later successes. 

Too often, however, decisions as to 
whether to hire a college graduate are 
based at least partly on the grade point 
average. It is difficult to blame employers 
for this, however, when educational in- 
stitutions continue to place as much em- 
phasis on grades as they do, with de- 
termination of awards and scholarships, 
part-time jobs and organization officer- 
ships dependent on them. 

The grade point is the child of the 
university. It was born there, nurtured 
there and is now at work there. It must, 
therefore, be the university that will take 
the initiative in recognizing the grade 
point for what it is and the boundaries 
in which it can legitimately be applied. 



Russian Club Attempts 
To Increase Activities 

Members of the Russian Club of LVC 
have held several meetings during the 
current school year and have made ex- 
tensive plans for various activities to take 
place throughout the year. Twenty-two 
Russian language students and their 
guests have participated in the past acti- 
vities. 

The purpose of the club is to give 
Russian students an opportunity to con- 
verse and sing in Russian, to become 
familiar with traditional Russian foods, 
and to study the culture of Russia. The 
club also plans to take several field trips 
in the future. Several possibilities in- 
clude a visit to an Orthodox Russian 
Church for a viewing of a Russian play 
or movie. 

Mrs. Hansen, professor of Russian, 
is the club's advisor. William Wheeler, 
freshman, is the club's president and Rae 
Thompson, sophomore, the co-president. 
Ronald Ziegman, freshman, is secretary 
with Suzette Arnold assisting as publicity 
chairman. An, honorary member, Mrs. 
Alexander serves as treasurer. 

The club has planned to sing and 
dance in addition to presenting a display 
at the college's International Day. 



Grace Questions Ethics 
Of Modern Processing 

D. John Grace, Jr., is the author of 
"Current Problems in Data Processing by 
CPA Firms" in October, 1966, issue of 
Pennsylvania CPA Spokesman. Mr. Grace 
is a member of the LVC faculty and con- 
ducts his own public accounting practice 
in Palmyra. 

Mr. Grace is concerned with the ethical 
questions which arise because of the in- 
creasing use of electronic data processing 
in the accounting process. The CPA has 
high ethical and professional standards to 
maintain. 

The question then arises of whether or 
not the CPA can aid his client in prepar- 
ing various financial forms and reports 
using electronic data processing and then 
attesting to the validity of the statements 
so prepared. 

Mr. Grace formulates two ethical ques- 
tions when the CPA engages an EDP 
service bureau: 

1. Is the service bureau violating the 
confidential relationship between the CPA 
and his client? 

2. Are the fees which the service bureau 
receives in violation of the professional 
code of the CPA association? 

Mr. Grace suggests that a possible ans- 
wer may lie in the formation of a nation- 
wide or cooperative service bureau under 
the sponsorship of the American Institute 
of Certified Public Accountants. 



LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS
